Sold for £850
A pair of Empire patinated and gilt bronze figural candlesticks, early 19th century, the urn sockets atop opened umbrellas held aloft by the standing figures of robed Chinamen, on cylindrical bases with beaded collars and square bases, 30.5cm high excluding later electrical fitments
Both candleholders bear the usual minor scuffs and knocks overall consistent with age and use
The stem of one of them is a little bent and is also loose in the hand of the standing figure
The lower section of the stem that protrudes beneath the hand has been broken off at some point and restored
Both items have been later re-fitted with electrical sockets but the electrical elements and wiring will need to be renewed by a qualified electrician
The cylindrical bases are also of bronze.
