Pair of French Brass Candelabras with Religious Enamel Medallions
Dimensions: 17 1/2″H x 16 1/2″W x 4 1/2″D
A splendid pair of brass candelabras from the turn of the century, France. Each candlestick will accommodate five taper candles, with floral bobeches to catch any dripping wax. The pair has been decorated with lovely scrolled brass and four colored, enameled medallions. The medallions depict the four apostles responsible for penning the Gospel. Mark is pictured with a winged lion, Matthew with a winged angel, Luke with a winged bull, and John with a winged eagle. Bejeweled brass flowers also embellish this excellent pair, adding additional color to the brass candlesticks.
