A Pair of Napoléon III Gilt-Bronze and Champlevé Figural Candlesticks.

These exquisite candlesticks are in the form of two finely cast putto figures, one playing a lyre the other a bag pipe, supporting lappet shaped drip trays and circular sconces, with turquoise ground champlevé enamel decoration. The candlesticks are raised on corresponding domed lobed bases with foliate champlevé enamel.

Champlevé enamelling, is similar to cloisonné in that the enamel is applied to discrete cells separated by metal. However, in champlevé, cells or troughs are cast into or cut away from the metal base, leaving a raised metal line between the cells which forms the outline of a design. The cells are then filled with molten or powdered glass and fired.
