  • Origin:
A rare and dramatic pair of Napoleon III bronze ormolu candelabra expertly cast and designed by the celebrated French bronzeur Ferdinand Barbedienne, who established the famous French foundry. Bearing the bold Neoclassical imagery so eagerly embraced during this period, these candelabra are a study in balance and proportion, with extravagant accents of acanthus, flowers, masks, fruit and intricately cast ram's heads all held within a strict tripartite design. Barbedienne was one of the most sought-after founders of late 19th century France, and carried contracts with some of Paris' greatest sculptors. Today, pieces hailing from this foundry are extremely sought after by collectors.
