A key matter is the condition of a silver item and how much restoration work has taken place. When picking out silver antiques that are over 200 years old they need to have what is called a 'patina' which is a combination of the colour and the wear. You cannot expect an old silver item to appear as if it just emerged from the workshop - if it really does then it has most likely been considerably restored which is not a positive thing for a piece of antique silver. Remember that that in the silver antiques world a touch of restoration is acceptable where a small ding or dent may be very carefully removed. But be mindful of over plating, lead or silver solder, repaired seams, holes, erased inscriptions, patches and later additions or ornaments. All of these are inappropriate for a piece of great antique silver. The good news is that here at Regent Antiques we are careful to and provide only the finest unblemished silver pieces and if things like re-plating has been done we will inform you.

Antique Pair Large Empire Ormolu Bronze Candelabra C1860

Antique Pair Large Empire Ormolu Bronze Candelabra C1860

Dating from around 1860, this is an exquisite large antique pair of dark patinated bronze and gilded ormolu five light, four branch Empire candelabra. Each of these candelabra is cast as a classical muse and stands on canted square plinths cast with acanthus. This beautiful pair of bronze candelabra are in elegant Empire style, a neoclassical style prevalent in France during the first part of the 19th century. We bought these on our last buying trip to Montpelier. Condition These ormolu bronze candelabra are in excellent original condition. Please check the photographs for confirmation of this. More About Empire Style The Empire style that these ormolu bronze candelabra are typical of, was an early 19th century design movement that spanned not only the decorative arts and furniture, but also architecture and the visual arts in Europe and America. The style originated in France during the reign of Napoleon I taking its name from the First French Empire where it was intended to idealize Napoleon’s leadership. It corresponds to the Regency style in England, the Biedermeier style in German-speaking lands and the Federal style in the United States. The overall design ethic was based on aspects of the Roman Empire and is considered the second phase of neoclassicism which was so popular throughout the 18th and early 19th centuries. Motifs draw heavily from ancient Greek and Roman symbols and ornamentation, as is the case with these dark patinated bronze and gilded ormolu candelabra which display figures of the Muses, ancient Greek goddesses. More About Ormolu Ormolu is the 18th century English term used to describe the French method for gilding bronze with a fine gold veneer. Involving coating the item with a mercury amalgam containing high-carat fine powdered gold, the item would then be fired in a kiln ensuring the mercury was driven off leaving the golden gilt surface. However, the method using mercury was outlawed in France in the 1830s, due to the toxic nature of mercury. In more modern times electroplating was used to gild bronze and other metals, although some authorities believe that the mercury method produced a better quality finish.

The branches and sconces are superbly cast as roses, with decorative twin handles to the sides, and raised on acanthus and fruiting laurel socles. Condition These gilded ormolu and marble candelabra are in excellent condition. Please refer to the photographs for confirmation of this. More About ‘Verde Antico’ “Verde antico” is Italian for ‘ancient green’ and denotes a type of stone that has been very popular as a decorative facing stone since ancient times. As the name suggests, it is a dark, dull green, white-mottled or white-veined serpentine rock which takes a high polish. More About Ormolu Ormolu is the term for the gilding process that was used extensively in France. The process involved gilding a metal surface using mercury amalgam that had been mixed with fine powdered gold. The item would be fired in a kiln at high temperatures and the mercury would burn off leaving the gold veneered surface. Mercury was banned by statute in France in the 1830s and the more modern gilding process uses electroplating.
