Pair of Restauration Bronze Dore et Patine Candelabra

second quarter 19th century, on reeded bases with molded dore trim, the standards in the form of cupids balancing on spheres, holding aloft pierced and scrolled patinated bronze arms mounted with dore cups, the central cups with flame-molded candle holders.
h. 28", dia. 9-1/2"


Both candelabra have been drilled for electrification, and retain remnants of old wiring and switches on bases. One has been repaired (soldered) at candelabrum stem (~1" above cupid's hand) and at one candelabrum arm. The same example has a bobeche that has been affixed with an adhesive. On the second candelabrum, one arm has been repaired (soldered). Both examples exhibit surface scratches, light accretions, oxidation and rubbing to some of the gilding - all of which is to be expected with age and use.
