# 5316. A pair of French Gothic Style Candelabras. Charles X era: circa 1815-1820. Size: The base is 6" across, 27" tall and the candleholders are 13" across. Condtion: patina original and in excellent condition; missing all the candle bobeches (if there were any). A smiliar pair is pictured in a room in Schloss Rosenau. A letter on file with us from Dr. Matthias Memmel, curator of the Rosenau Museum, informed us that the pair in the museum were purchase by Duke Ernst I between 1807 and 1815. "But Rosenau was remodelled in the Neo-Gothic style by Duke Ernst I between 1808 and 1817. Many items of furniture were purchase in Vienna. But Duke Ernst I loved to buy in France, too." We are attributing the pair as French made. Price for the pair is: $15,000.00.
