A Pair of candle holder with roughened flutes and oak leaves frieze

France, Louis XVI period
Chased and gilt bronze

Each candle is constituted by a roughened flute with asparagus, separated from the base with deeper flutes, ending with leaves. The nozzles are bulging, fluted, emerging from a foliated beam. The bobeche is surrounded by a laurel garland and an oak leaves garland flanks the top of the shaft and the base.

A sober and elegant neoclassical example
This pair of candle holder with delicate chiselling is a good example of the vocabulary in vogue during the Louis XVI period. It combines a refined shape multiplying the references to antique architecture such as roughened flutes and vase-shaped nozzles with elegant oak leaves friezes.
