VERY FINE ANTIQUE SILVER PLATED NAUTICAL THEMED ' SEA HORSE' 3 BRANCH CANDELABRA

HI , AND WELCOME TO THIS sale FOR A VERY FINE & HEAVY , ANTIQUE SILVER PLATED 3 BRANCH CANDELABRA.

A SIMPLY STUNNING PIECE, AND IN THE MOST FABULOUS & RAREST OF STYLES.

THIS IS OF A NAUTICAL NATURE, AS IS SO WONDERFULLY DETAILED.

FEATURING A PAIR OF LARGE ' SEAHORSES ' OR MYTHICAL SEA CREATURES, STRECHING FROM THE CENTRE & OUT TO THE SIDES & EACH HOLDING A CANDLE BRANCH.

EACH IS DECORATED WITH FABULOUS PRECISION. THE TAILS HAVE THEIR SCALES, THEY APPEAR TO EACH HAVE THE ARMS OF A MAN & A PAIR OF WONDEROUS WINGS WITH FEATHERED DETAIL. THE HORSES HEADS HAVE SUPERB , FLOWING MANES & VERY MUCH LOOK LIKE A PEGASUS, BUT WITH A MERMAIDS TAIL. SO A MYTHICAL SEAHORSE.

THE BASE IS BY NO MEANS LESS IMPRESSIVE. HAVING 4 X FINE CAST 'SEA SHELLS' STANDING UPRIGHT AROUND THE BASE.

THE CENTRAL DIAMETER OF THE BASE HAS PIERCED PATTERNS, THESE ARE AGAIN OF FANTASTICAL SEA CREATURES, WITH FEATHERED BANDS BETWEEN EACH IMAGE. AND STANDING UPON 4 X FLUTED, BUN FEET.

THE LARGE, CENTRAL BRANCH IS A REAL MIXTURE OF STYLE & FORM.

THE LOWER PART IS OF A FLUTED, VASE SHAPE. THIS RISES INTO A GLOBE, WITH 'ARCHED' FLUTING ALL THE WAY AROUND.

ABOVE THIS THERE ARE 'ACANTHUS' LEAVES SPROUTING UP TO A GRADUATED COLUMN. THIS HAS THE FACE OF A BEARDED MAN UPON EITHER SIDE, AND LOOKS TO BE ' NEPTUNE '.

ABOVE HIM IS ANOTHER 'GLOBE' SHAPE WITH INTERESTING PATTERNS & ON TOP OF THIS IS THE FLUTED CANDLE HOLDER.
