  • A pair of Auguste-Maximilien Delafontaine gilt bronze candlesticks c. 1870. The stems are carefully articulated to resemble sticks of bamboo, and are each surmounted by a heron sitting upon a tortoise with a snake in its mouth. Each candlestick has six arms with room for six candles, and the pair end in tripod bases with sabots.


    Condition: generally good/very good. Part of one snake is missing, although hardly noticeable. We also feel that at one time the sabots stood upon a marble base perhaps, but they are very steady and usable in their present state.
