Large pair of candelabra signed James Pradier

Important pair of neo-classical candelabras representing two young women with ancient drapes and each supporting a candlestick with seven lights.

The white marble bases are surrounded by gilded bronze and decorated with natural bronze bas-reliefs also depicting two young women in the register of Roman mythology. The white marble highlights the two large bronze figures whose details are finely sculpted, notably the drapery and the expressive faces. At the top triumph two candlesticks with seven gilded bronze winding lights finely chiseled to the bottom of the binets.

Excellent workmanship and large dimensions, signed Pradier and Susse Frères.
