An exceptionally fine pair of mid 18th century Adam period carved giltwood girandoles attributed to William France, each having a replaced 18th century heart shaped mirror plate within a conforming giltwood frame issuing acanthus leaves to the sides and draped with carved husk swags, having twin candle arms, each with brass nozzle and drip pan hung with later cut glass prisms; the open pierced top crested by a carved anthemion.
