France, Circa 1825
a) 27.75 in (70.7 cm) high
b) 28 in (71 cm) high

(Set of two)


Fine pair of Charles X cast and chased six-light fluted columnar candelabra chiselled with palmettos, foliage, and lotus leaves. Tripartite feet with claws on triangular bases.

The reign of Charles X (1757-1836) is closely linked to the decorative style that carries his name. Furniture retained the heavy aspect it acquired during the Empire, yet forms became lighter and more supple following the Romantic trend and a renewed passion for the Gothic period.
