Pair French 19th C. Cut Crystal & Dore Bronze Multi-Arm Candelabra w/ Roosters

About the Item

A Monumental Pair of French 19th Century Cut Crystal and Dore Bronze Multi-Arm Candelabra with Rooster Heads. This ornate, extravagant pair of monumental bronze candelabras exemplify French empire taste and the style of King Louis XVI. Standing on an ormolu mounted base with a hand-carved crystal stem and elaborate draping arm pieces, the candelabra are both detailed and grandiose. The square base layers ormolu with crystal, and then another addition of an ormolu chalice connecting the stem to the crystal mount. The ormolu fixtures feature acanthus leaves and rooster heads, bringing in two multiple elements of neoclassical imagery to make a display of French imperial taste. On the crystal stem, the craftsman carved diamond-shaped facets that cover the entire surface of the material. The pattern gives the candelabra contrasting shapes—orderly rows of quadrilaterals and sprawling floral fixtures. Another curious contrast occurs between the stately appearance of the candelabra with the presence of the rooster heads atop the candle attachments. France, Circa: 1800's
