This is a beautiful pair of antique French onyx and gilt
ormolu 5 branch gilt candlesticks.
Each candlestick stands 43.8cms or 17¼” tall. The gilding on the ormolu has faded with time
and they have a fabulous Fatigued French finish. The gilt is still in place underneath the
candle holders and is a glorious shiny gold, I have to say that I prefer the
faded elegance of the front surface!
The engraving on the ormolu is fabulous. There is some verdigris but they would polish
up more if you wished, I have only wiped the surface.
They are very heavy and the combined weight of the pair is
4.320kgs, so unfortunately the shipping will be expensive.
In excellent vintage condition, they stand on 4 little
ormolu legs. One of the candlesticks
rocks slightly on its leg but this does not affect the way that it stands. It still stands well.
A pair of 19th century French gilt ormolu &
onyx garniture candlesticks.
