Title Antique French gilt bronze Chandelier circa 1850 original gold gilt ormolu 15 candle holders cut crystals

 


Description

Very rare antique French gilt bronze Chandelier circa 1850 original gold gilt ormolu 15 candle holders with wax drop trays and cut crystals icicles.

The gilt ormolu with extremely high quality casting and chase work all in excellent condition featuring angels and putti with acanthus scrollwork and crowns etc.

There are two tiers of candle holder arms in the most amazing intricate scrollwork all joined by a central rod and terninating in a large gilt acorn finial at base.

 

This extremely rare example still maintains its original gilt finish - a value point.

It has been wired previously for electricity but these old clumsy fittings have been removed retunring this light to its former grace and elegance for original candle light. It is very easy to have this chandelier rewired for electric light and I would recommend it be done properly to allow for the candle sconces to be used for wax candles in the traditional manner.  The ornate skeleton frame allows for many ways to electrify this with small discretly hidden halogen or LED globes so as not to spoil the magnificance of this rare treasure.

Title  Blonde Swedish Provincial Mora long case grandfather clock original hand painted dial with twin bells


Description

Antique Swedish Empire MORA grandfather clock with carved hand shaped pine long case with origninal working 8 day movement. 

The tall case in typical provincial blonde wood waxed finish and with elegant cold climate spruce grain.

Of typical form  with drumhead top but more elegant Empire tapering body.

The Swedish Mora clock first appeared in Stockholm during the Gustavian Period in the mid-eighteenth century. Farmers in the Mora area wanted to look for ways to supplement their income. The villagers of Östnor, outside Mora, turned to traditional home crafts such as the making of clocks. This was essential work as the long frozen winter months restricted work to indoor activities. Each farming family specialized in a specific part: some made the brass clockworks, some painted the dials while others built or painted the cases. At the height of production more than 90 families were engaged in the trade, and Mora functioned as one large clock factory. This traditional hand made craft eventually ceased when cheaper mass production clocks from America became available from the 1840's onwards.

 

The steel and brass clock mechanism with  top mounted twin bells and two cast iron weights. The bell strikes the hour count. A recently replaced long brass pendulum is housed within the case. The clock face with hand painted enamel face with Roman numerals in black on white with the superb cut steel hands .

Two train movement with winding key. The door to the pendulum case with original steel lock and steel key.

The drum head shaped top with opening front door retains it original hand brlown convex glass front.

The main body with a unusual neoclassical tapering pyramidic shape  and hinged panel door with round window front opens with with traditional steel key on spring lock.

The shaped pine mouldings to the case in the provincial manner complete with pegged joints in 18th century tradition. .

Title   French antique Gothic marble pedestal

Dimensions

 

Height 86 cm

Width 52 cm

Depth 38 cm

 

 


Description

A massive solid French grey marble turned column pedestal. The marble is in three separately carved components consisting of :

a traditional pedestal circular base , a massive turned column centre  and a stepped turned top with rectangular shaped top, all carved from one massive marble piece.

The top has been repaired at some time but could easily be mended properly  or covered with a separate facia slab of marble. Yes this marble has seen some use but still holds its weight well.

This marble pedestal would date from the early to mid 1800's and would have supported a considerable weight , possibly even a marble statue of great importance.

the three sections are: turned base height 17cm , column centre height 53 cm, turned and rectangular top height 15cm . Would be perfect for an outdoor table base on the patio!

Title Monolithic carved basalt marble Caryatid figure of an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Life size

Dimensions

Width 51cm

Height 153cm

Depth 38cm

Description 

Solid carved stone black basalt or marble sculptured figure carved from a single monolithic block.

This rare statue of an ancient Egyptian nobleman as a Visier or Paraoh  and is life size for the period with very well carved proportions.

Extremely heavy as its carved from one solid block of stone and weighs in excess of 300 kg.

the arms are carved from the same single block and the support stone near the wrists is still in place, clearly this is a copy of a period ancient sculpture as this was traditional for most stone sculptures prior to freight and delivery  to prevent breakages and could have been grpund away once the sattue was firmly in place.

As this may have been excavted in the same condition, perhaps from a shipwreck sunk at sea, it makes perfect sense that these connecting points are still attached and that this particular carved replica is ture to the ancient archaeological original in every aspect.

Title Pair late 18th century Grand Italian chandeliers with wrought iron frames and brass gilt Chandeliers



Description

Very rare PAIR of antique Italian Vatican chandeliers. The antique brass and hand wrought iron frame is mounted by original eight lead counter weighted candle sconces. The hand cut antique glass crystals appear to be the original and are all of the period, first 1/4 of the 19th century or earlier. The grand scale of these chandeliers is indicative of a high ceiling house of the nobility. The crown is fitted with shaped and embossed "feathers" that emmanate from it. Priced as per pair only...shame to split them as they have survived for such a long time together.

Of note: with the launch of the "Da Vinci Code" , a mysterious chandelier from St Peter's was hung in Borders Books store in London. The online Auctioneer Lucknows sold it for a reported 12,500 GBP in October 2005.
