Antique DE LARUE/DE LA RUE French Paris Ornate Brass Twin Candelabra/Candlestick
Up for sale is a beautiful, ornate antique Delarue / De Larue or De La Rue Paris French brass twin candelabra or candlestick holders. It's also marked "2.R. Commines" and has the initials "BD" and the number "849". It's 11" tall. The top tip is a sheath of perhaps wheat with 2 dolphins forming the top knob. There are reticulated drip plates, stem bulb and base with elaborate designs throughout. Above the stem bulb as in photo #4 there's an ornate design that I love because it looks like there's a circle of chicken leg drumsticks (at least to me). The base is a bit over 4" in diameter. The thinnest part of the stem above the base has a break in the metal that could likely be repaired. However, the support rod in the piece is intact and it stands upright and is completely functional as is. Otherwise it's in very nice condition with a great aged patina to the brass making it a copper color. I purchased this at an estate sale and am uncertain of its age. I have not been able to find any information of the De Larue name but it's obvious the piece was extremely well crafted and could date to even the 19th century.
*Please note that my shipping time is up to 5 business days as I have multiple jobs and can only ship one day a week. If you happen to purchase after I return from the post office on shipping day it will be a full week wait until I am able to ship again. But most people will have a much shorter wait and some will have very fast shipping. No one will have to wait more than 5 business days. Thank you for understanding.
