Victorian Girandole Single Candlestick Holder Bronze Motif with Figures and Branches.
Girandole, although the name, is Italian in origin, girandoles reached the greatest heights of fashion (in the second half of the 18th century) in France and England. At the beginning of this period, they represented the most exuberant expression of the Rococo.
A girandole has always been, comparatively speaking, a luxurious appliance for lighting, and in the great 18th century period of French house decoration, the famous ciseleurs designed some exceedingly beautiful examples. A great variety of metals have been used for the purpose. Sometimes, as in the case of candlesticks, girandoles have been made in hardwoods. Gilded Bronze and other mediums.
