A French 19th Century Louis XVI St. Ormolu And Silvered Bronze Lamp
Item # 7217
A stunning and large scale French 19th century Louis XVI st. ormolu and silvered bronze lamp. The lamp is raised by a fine ormolu mottled socle pedestal decorated by a berried laurel band, with fluted and les oves patterns, all in a satin and burnished finish. The burnished silvered bronze body of the lamp is decorated with impressive and richly chased maiden masks joined by exquisite and detailed swaging floral garlands with scrolled handles. At the top encasing the fut are large richly chased ormolu acanthus leaves. Wonderful proportions.
