These early 20th century candlesticks are cast of bronze in the form of two young boys dressed in flowing garments and standing on square pedestal bases. Each boy holds a dish for taper candles overhead, tucked within a cluster of lotus leaves, blossoms, and seed pods. This common combination of motifs conveys a blessing for continuous success. Likely designed for a Western market or an example of European chinoiserie, the bronze candle stands charm with sculptural form and a beautifully aged dark patina.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.
