Lot Essay

The inspiration for the base and stem on the present candelabra derives from Ancient Roman candelabra as engraved by G. B. Piransi (1720-1778) and published in England in 1811 in H. Moser's A Collection of Antique Vases, Altars, Paterae, Tripods Candelabra, Sarcophagi, &c. Other examples of the same design include a pair of candelabra made for Thomas, 3rd Baron Foley, (T. Schroder, The Gilbert Collection of Gold and Silver, Los Angeles, 1988, pp. 419-421, no. 112) and a pair made for Sir Richard Sutton 2nd Bt., (Christies, London, 5 July 2000, lot 4)
