Pair of very decorative gilt and patinated bronze French Restauration period candlesticks with decorations of vine leaves and grapes. These antique candlesticks have a fluted barrel on a round base. Everywhere we see nicely carved decorations of vine leaves and grapes. They are symbols of abundance, prosperity and fertility. In Greek mythology the god of the wine Dionysus, known as Bacchus in the Roman tradition, was also symbolized by vine leaves and grapes.
This pair of French candlesticks has been executed in gilded bronze with a mat and shiny gilding. The contrast between the dark patina and the gilded parts is particularly harmonious. They are in a good condition.
Dimensions: 27 cm high, diameter 11.5 cm.
A similar pair is in the collection of the Mobilier National (inventory number GML-557-001).
