19th Century, Pair of French Golden Bronze Candelabra and Polychrome Porcelain
The pair of elegant three-light chandeliers was made in France in the nineteenth century in the factory of Marx Eugene Claus (1868-1887) as can be seen from the mark representing the crossed swords with the letters "E" "C" in blue. They have a finely chiselled and golden bronze structure. The candelabra also consist of two figures in porcelain finely painted in polychrome and depicting characters, one male and one female, in eighteenth-century clothing.
The three bronze arms, which culminate in candle holders, are chiselled with phytomorphic motifs and small garlands. The circular bronze bases are adorned with a reserve with a chisel shaped like laurel leaves. The band below has an ornament with woven torches and plant motifs.
These two candlesticks, distinctly ornamental, are easily inserted on consoles, dressers or tables, both of ancient and modern times. They have an excellent performance if positioned in front of a mirror through which it will be fully usable even the back of the figures highlighting their three-dimensionality. They will bring great decoration and liveliness to your rooms thanks to the richness of gold and decorations, the bright color that distinguishes the porcelain
