January 19, 2017
London, United KingdomLive Auction
Description: the circular glass-covered feet supporting two tiers of candle arms, all with pear-shaped drops, and surmounted by a group of finials
The metalwork in overall good condition, but in need of a good clean in order to regain its gilt tone. One branch on each candelabrum is bent and needs to be repositioned. The glass is in overall good condition, but it would also benefit from a clean. One glass section to the central axis to one is broken, however this does not detract from the overall look of the piece. Very minor chips to glass.
