A pair of French bronze & ormolou candlesticks, c. 1870. The seated bronze monkeys grasping a fluted cornucopia, with leaves, berries & fruit spilling from the top, & surmounted by the sconces. Seated upon a grassy mound base, cast with leaves. The whole set upon elaborate Rococo scroll bases, beneath a laurel wreath border.
The details of both the bronze monkeys, & the ormolou mounts are finely hand finished, with the gilding remaining in excellent condition.
