For a clock garniture including a similar pair of this form see Christie's, New York, 21 October 2008, lot 107. The design for these candelabra are characteristic of Alexander Kips, artistic director at the Manufactory. The exuberant flower modeling, rocaille scrolls and putti typical of the Neo-Rococo style are fully exhibited in the present lot. Kaiser Wilhelm II (1859-1941) is known to have favored this style, decorating the Neue Palais in the fashion.
Franz Aulich (Silesian 1852 - ), is recorded at the Berlin (K.P.M.) manufactory as a flower painter c. 1888.
