French 19th Century Bronze Candelabra with Champleve Insets


This unusual pair of 19th century three branch candelabra is made of bronze and features Champleve insets. The French antique pair is flat-backed, made to be used against the wall, as on a mantel, and has bronze candle cups and bobeches of leaves. The champleve is gorgeous and features a light blue background with red, orange, and darker blue pattern work. The name comes from the French word for ‘raised field,’ and comes from an enameling process in which cells are etched into the surface of a metal object and filled with vitreous enamel then fired. Finally, the pair is adorned with acanthus leaves on the scroll stems.
