CA0983 Pair of Nike Three Branch Candelabra
A lovely pair of late 19th century French Belle Epoque Empire style patinated and gilt bronze candelabra. A finely cast model of Nike, the winged goddess of victory in Greek mythology, stands on spheres holding aloft a classically inspired fountain to create a three arm candelabra. Decorated with Empire inspired designs and sitting on a patinated stepped base with four superb feet embellished with stylised acanthus leaves. Super quality. Stamped 'FRANCE' to underside of the base dates them to circa 1890 and the introduction of the McKinley Act in the USA.
