THE GRAND TOUR

A COLLECTION OF OBJECTS PURCHASED BY TRAVELERS ABROAD

# 5227: A pair (2) of 19th century Italian Grand Tour Candelabras. Bronze. Probably made in Rome or Naples. Each is app. 12" tall; base is 4.5" across. Sitting on three paw feet supporting a platter with 4 Roman recessed 'coin' medallions inturn supporting a two arm candle holder topped with a male nude figure: one Baccus and the other a cymbal player. Signed with the initials: A.D. and a star. Condition: the threaded rod holding the candelabra together has probably been replaced; there may or may not have been candle cup inserts (candles fit and are supported very well in the candle holders).There are tiny white paint spatters on the candelabras that should be easy to remove; the medallion pans: one seems to be lighter that then other suggesting that it was cleaned at one time. These candelabras are beautifully detailed with Neo-Grec decorations. Of the scores of Italian Grand Tour objects over the years, this is the first pair of candelabras in this style and decoration that we have come across. Price: $3,500.00.
