Pair French Louis XV Style Bronze Ormolu Mounted Porcelain and Tole Candlesticks. Antique Lighting.
Almost matching pair of antique 19th century glowing bronze ormolu and tole tabletop candlesticks decorated with Saxon 18th and 19th century porcelain flowers among tole vines and leaves. These charming candlesticks are clearly representative of the “Pompadour taste” which marks the peak of decorative art under the reign of Louis XV. These beautiful gilt bronze candleholders have all their original, delicate porcelain flowers.
Condition: Good. Almost matching pair. One flower has two broken pedals. Drilled to be electrified.
