A Pair of Period French Empire Nike Candelabra now wired as Lamps
A fine and rare pair of Period French Empire gilt and patinated bronze candelabra now wired as lamps. A patinated bronze winged Nike holds a gilt candle nozzle in each outstretched arm, a third nozzle rises from her head. Each nozzle is decorated with finely chased gilt flowers and leaves. She stands on a gilt round ball on a further stepped gilt bronze drum base. Fortunately an ebonized wooden base has been added to handle wiring rather than drilling through the back of the gilded base. The gilding and the bronze chasing are of the highest quality. French circa 1820.
Dimensions: 5.25″Base x 33″H (to top of shade) Height to top of candle nozzle 23″.
