Magnificent chandelier called "oil lamp" with 9 sconces.
Very rare model in this invoice with bronzes with a double brown and golden patina and with exceptional carving.
Several details underline the elegance of this chandelier such as the ceiling light decorated with large palmettes resulting from a finely chiseled crown of braces from which emerge the heads of chimeras; the flame coming out of the center of the oil lamp; and finally, the generous crown of water leaves and acanthus leaves which completes the lower part of the chandelier.
You can easily imagine this chandelier bringing a pleasant touch of refinement to your interiors. The oil lamp is characteristic of lighting allegories under the Empire.
The ornamentalists Percier and Fontaine have also used it in certain large models of candelabras, hot water lamps, wall lights ...
This is an object of the decorative arts of ancient Rome, a strong power under the Empire of Caesar, to be compared to Napoleon I's desire to conquer Europe.


I offer my objects in a low expert estimate. Thus, their acquisition gives you the assurance of a safe investment.
