RARE ORMOLU AND GILT COBALT GLASS ANTIQUE 6 ARM CANDELABRA. This has been attributed to Baccarat Glass located outside of Paris and is an earlier piece estimated mid 1800’s but could be a little earlier. It is common for earlier pieces to not have signature. It comes out of an estate in San Francisco and have had this for several years. The candelabra is very heavy weighing fifteen (15) pounds and measures 24″ tall (excluding candles) and 14″ diameter. The base is done in ormolu bronze with three feet with ornate Griffin figures (see pictures above). The column is a combination of numerous pieces of ormolu and cobalt blue glass. The 6 arms are very elegant and ornate also in ormolu and have acanthus leaf umbrella’s under the individual cups and then faceted cut crystals (eleven 11 on each arm) hanging off the acanthus leaf.This would look beautiful on a table in the entry hall, or centerpiece for your formal dining room table, etc. The condition considering age is good. There are (4) opalescent cabacons on the main upper portion of the cobalt blue glass piece, (2) are missing and have been replaced with facet cut cobalt blue large rhinestones and not too readily noticeable but noted for accuracy. The upper smaller portion of the cobalt blue glass stem has been repaired (I will show all these to you if you come to view it). Overall still in great condition and a wonderful antique candelabra.
