Description

 

A delightful pair of two arm candelabra, each featuring a porcelain figure of a laughing boy set in ormolu mounts. The boys, decorated in the imari style, are posed in a seated position, arms outstretched, a joyous expression on their faces. A whimsical ormolu acorn cap has been placed on each of their bald heads, furthering their innocent charm. The rest of the ormolu mounts are similarly cast in a naturalistic motif. Rising from a footed base of scrolling acanthus leaves, the shaft is formed as a leafy branch splitting into the two arms, terminating in a bobeche and socket in the form of overlapping oak leaves.
