    18th Century
  • Origin:
    France
A rare and elegant pair of French silver candlesticks in the Directoire style by master silversmith Rene-Pierre Ferrier. These excellent candle holders reflect the refined neoclassicism of this brief period in French history, with their careful fluting, graceful egg-and-dart trim and gentle swirling accent. The Directoire style was the last phase of the Louis XVI style, and emphasized elongated, simple shapes with clean lines and sparse detail. Influenced by ancient Roman objects recovered from excavations at Pompeii, this fashion was itself a precursor to the boldly neoclassical Empire style of Napoleon's reign.

Candlesticks feature bull's head sterling marks.

Paris, circa 1778

10 ¾" high
