Volkstedt Thuringia Porcelain Pair Of Figure Candlesticks C1880 Lady & Gentleman For Sale
Volkstedt Thuringia Porcelain Pair of Figure Candlesticks c1880 Lady & Gentleman
saleisan interesting and early pair of figural candlesticks manufactured in Volkstedt Thuringia in Germany in the last quarter of the 19th century.
The items are made in the Dresden style and are of superb quality. The candlesticks are figural and show a courting couple with a lady to one figure and her gentleman partner to the other. The figures are dressed in typical Regencty sty;e costome in elaborate fashion. The candlestick uprights are decorated with superbly made and applied hand made flowers and trailing foliage on a tree trunk moulded design.
The pair displays very nicely but there are some areas for consideration as shown in the close up photos and as now described. The gentleman candlestick has been broken and reglued across the tree trunk but this is relatively "clean" and there are some small losses to the applied flower petals on the same candlestick. In addition there is some chipping to the fingers on his outstretched hand. The lady candlestick has some misses to the applied flowers and also some chipping to the sconce leaves around where the candle would sit. She also has some chipping to her outstetched hand and some losses to the ribbons on her dress. Despite these factors the candlesticks still show very nicely and they are considered to be a very nice pair.
Please see the attached photographs for confirmation of condition.
