FRENCH FLOOR LAMPS Rare Pair of Marble & Gilt Bronze Antique Candelabras
PAIR OF NEOCLASSICAL WHITE MARBLE GILT BRONZE FLOOR LAMPS. Likely French, circa early 20th century Item # 803KMG14Q. This unusually excellent pair of seven-light floor lamp candelabra are a powerful strikepoint for the interior, each with a series of crystals hanging from chaotic plumes of brass branches, smaller crystals hanging around the drip-catch of each stem. This pair of floor lamps have always been electrified and were designed as such, presenting beautifully in the warm glow of electrified candlelight. Years of polishing and cleaning has allowed the metal content of the castings to come forward, as originally these would likely have all had the same golden wash; the urns have a higher copper content in the brass, lending a certain rose-gold hue, particularly to one urn. The casting quality is excellent throughout, each pedestal mounted with a rams head at each corner with a necklace of laurel leaves flanking garland drapes. Crafted during the first quarter of the 20th century, they are a product of the Belle Epoque period with clean Neoclassical lines that borrow heavily from the Louis XVI motifs of a century earlier. They are a rare and exceptional find that make a dramatic presentation in the classical interior. 15 1/2 W x 14 D x 50 H. Condition Report: One panel is missing its string of brass beading.
Missing a few crystals, a few crystals with light chipping. Some later strands of wire for attaching crystals. Outward flares of roping around urns drooping on two ends. Minor chips, wear and discoloration to the marble stands. Old wiring - the lights work beautifully but we always recommend you have the wiring inspected by a professional.
