A fine pair of antique bronze candlesticks of figural design, each having a gilded cherub astride a silvered crocodile base and holding several bunches of grapes wrapped in vine tendrils. Made of solid bronze with a gilt and silver plated finish. The quality is exceptional; the cherubs are well modelled and the crocodiles are realistic. Substantial weight. Height 22 cms. Crocodile length 14 cms, 9.75 cms. The candlestick nozzles are signed “Alph.Giroux.Paris” and would have been specially commissioned by him for Maison Giroux, Paris. Circa 1840.
These attractive candle holders are in very good condition with no damage or restoration. They are complete with the original screws underneath and signed candlestick nozzles. The silver plate is very bright. The gilt finish is dull.
Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
