This pair of figural three arm antique candelabra with marble bases and prisms date to the 1840s.

The figures are the same on both pieces and depict a well dressed boy and girl in front of a tree. It appears that the boy is picking flowers and the girl is putting them into her basket.

The figures are quite detailed and the workmanship in the moulding is very good.

The marble bases are in very good condition with only a couple of minor fleabites around the edges. The original hand cut square nuts are still in place too. This is quite remarkable really considering their age.

This lovely pair of antique candelabra is completed with replacement hanging prisms.

 Each piece measures 43cm (17″) tall by 39.5cm (15.5″) wide and the bases are 15cm (6″) wide by 9cm (3 1/2″) deep.

This shallow, linear arrangement allows them to sit easily on a mantlepiece. They are designed to sit in front of a large mirror so that the light output is doubled. The light catching on the prisms adds to the overall light output and certainly adds to the grandeur of this set of antique girandoles.
