 ( FR   NL )


Pair of Patinated Bronze Candlesticks signed F. Barbedienne

Date: late 19th century


An esthetically intriguing pair of two-tone patinated bronze candlesticks dating from the Napoleon III eclectic era. The candlesticks have Art Nouveau like foliage motifs on the base, neo-classical fluted column stems, Renaissance like gadrooning, and a Celtic braid motif around the sconce….you can’t get more eclectic than this. 

Besides from being very decorative and quite unique in appearance, these are also of exceptional quality as the maker’s mark ‘F. Barbedienne’ denotes. Ferdinand Barbedienne (1810-1892) was a renowned and prolific French bronze founder. He is especially well known for his bronze sculptures and reproductions of sculptures by A. Rodin and A.L. Barye. Pieces founded by Barbedienne can command very high prices and are sought after.
