old french 4 arm candelabra/candle holder
- Source: eBay UK
This beautiful candelabra has been in our house in france for years,now its time for a change. I think the arms and base are cast from bronze .and the rest is in polished marble or could be onyx (i am not really sure)The cast base has quite a lot of details on it and those details are continued on the fret work and arms.It has 4 arms with a candle holder on each plus there is a further holder in the centre.It is in very good condition without any damage to the castings or marble work. It stands 45 cms tall and has a spread of 30cms. I would think that this candelabra dates back to the art nouveau/deco period. It has been used over the years and still has traces of candle wax on it so it would benefit from a good clean and polish .,but it still is a great centre piece for the dinning or hall table. Carriage by 2nd class mail at £5.95. A low start price for a good but useful antique.
