Candelabrum with chinese figure, Kangxi and Louis XV period

Candelabrum, gilded bronze, Paris, Louis XV period, enamelled sandstone, China, Kangxi period (1661-1722). Dim. (H x W x D): 21 x 25 x 11.5 cm.
This chiseled and gilded bronze candelabrum is composed of Chinese "arlequin" stoneware (brown, green, yellow) Kangxi period (1661-1722) in a rear mount, Louis XV period, made in Paris on order of a marchand-mercier.
The base incorporates two arms enriched with porcelain flowers of Vincennes or Meissen also of the eighteenth century. The basins, decorative but totally useless, are openwork in finely chopped leaves, of a very beautiful execution. Here the decorative prevails over the functional. This was denounced by Cochin and Abbe Dubois in the petition called "La Supplique aux orgèvres" and in other publications. They demanded the abandonment of the rocaille stule, by them considered too excessive, to return to the Louis XIV classicism and the Antique, whose models were both functional and decorative. Indeed this last kind was considered superior.
The binets are also very well worked, with a beautiful torso movement as we rarely see. The base is very rocaille and very well treated, without symmetry, without repetition, confirms the quality of the setting of this candelabrum.
The montages are also good. The gilding is beautiful, quite rich, and well preserved. The carving is really very good quality. It is about 1740-1750, when there is a clear qualitative leap.
As for the subject, the frame was made to measure, so it must be the original one. It is missing three porcelain flowers, which can be replaced on request.
