Gilt Bronze Antique Church Altar Candlestick w Angel Sculptures by Edmond Lesage



Stunning and heavy bronze. church altar candlestick by goldsmith Ed. Lesage of Paris, France. Unfortunately we don't know enough about Christian symbolism to be able to explain the meaning of all symbols in the three handcrafted gilt bronze plaques around the base. We assume that this stunning church candleholder is designed around the trinity, but we don't know for sure. There are three feet, three plaques with symbols, three wonderful angels sculptures, three guirlandes halfway up the stem and three scrolled leafs underneath the actual candleholder. There used to be six small guirlandes just above the feet, but three of those went missing somewhere in the past 130 years. Besides that one of the feet is turned slightly upward and there are some dents in the pin that holds the candle. Without these imperfections this unique antique would have been worth at least double our price. We believe that goldsmith Edmond Lesage created this striking and ornate church candleholder to celebrate the glory of god. The light of the burning candle, to us, represents the light that shines in all of us, but that many people are not aware of, yet. If you have a passion for unique, top quality, ornate and meaningful church relics then this one of a kind, antique and gilt bronze candleholder by Parisian goldsmith Edmond Lesage could be yours to own and enjoy soon. May it grace your church or living space for many happy and healthy years to come.
