  • $155,000.00

EXCEPTIONAL PAIR OF CAST & CHASED VICTORIAN SILVER-GILT FOUR-LIGHT CANDELABRA. CHARLES STUART HARRIS, LONDON, 1897. Each on shaped circular spreading base formed of a mingled mass of scroll work, shells, flowers & foliage. The shaft like a striated tree trunk, decorated near the bottom with a knop of owls' heads, above which are two dolphins, seperated by shells, their bodies twisted and their tails standing erect and free from the shaft. Above is a vase shaped candle socket with a circular dish shaped wax pan ornamented on the underside with bulrushes and on the upper side with foliated scrolls, foliage etc. The detachable three branches formed as double scrolls with vase shaped candle sockets and circular drip pans ornamented on the underside with eagles and on the upper side with foliage etc. The complex design of these candelabra incorporating revived baroque and rococo elements was first introduced during the Regency era by silversmiths such as Paul Storr. The most elaborate version of this design, a set of three- seven- and eight-light candelabra dating to 1813, is illustrated in M. Penzer, Paul Storr, 1954, page 164. Exceptional quality and style.
