Early 18th Century Pair of Rococo Candlesticks Carved Mecca Silver-Leaf Wood
From Lucca, a lovely pair of early 18th century Italian candleholders, two circular candlesticks realized in Cembran pinewood, with a polylobed carving and a silver-leaf mecca finish.
They come from a private noble Tuscan villa of Lucca and are in good age related condition, with wear consistent with use, wax traces and natural oxidation of silver-leaf coating.
In Italy this rather small candlestick model is the so-called panettone shaped candle holder, to define the rounded circular shape.

A pair of six-light brass and crystal candelabra, of French origin, dating back to early 20th century, with beautiful patina and original gilding traces. Each flambeau has six curved branches, the frame is decorated by crystal pendants, as well as the central stem coated with shaped crystal elements and topped by a crystal spire.
This pair of antique girandoles should be once wired as abat-jour, as we desume by holes on bases and bobeiges. In overall good condition, they come from a private palazzo in Milan.
