Antique Victor Saglier Art Nouveau Silver Plate Candelabras
A pair of late nineteenth century silver plate candelabras by Victor Saglier of Paris, France. The pair of candelabras are beautifully detailed in design. These matching Art Nouveau candelabras feature figural flame finials, ram’s head accents on their scrolled acanthus motif arms, floral drip pans, and fluted bodies and bases with raised acanthus designs. Although we have classified these as Art Nouveau, they certainly give nod to Louis XVI style. They are each hallmarked to their bases dates it to the pair of candelabras to the late 1800s.
