Antique English Bronze Egyptian Revival French Sphinx Dog Candlestick Candelabra
THIS CANDLESTICK WAS EXHIBITED AT SFO MUSEUM AS A PART OF THEIR EGYPTIAN REVIVAL SHOW. IT TOOK PLACE AT THE TERMINAL "A" OF SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FROM JANUARY. FOR YOUR ATTENTION & CONSIDERATION: VERY RARE, AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL AND COMPLETE CANDLESTICK IN EGYPTIAN REVIVAL MOTIF. SOME COLLEAGUES ARGUE THAT THIS PIECE IS FRENCH, BUT I STRONGLY FEEL, THAT IT IS ACTUALLY MADE IN BRITAN. THE REASON FOR THIS ASSUMPTION IS THE WAY THE CANDLESTICK IS DESIGNED AND BUILT. FRENCH DESIGNS USUALLY INCLUDE A SQUARE, CIRCULAR OR RECTANGULAR BASE ON A FLAT OR SLIGHTLY RAISED SURFACE. THE ENGLISH ALMOST ALWAYS HAVE A FLORAL DECORATION ON CANDLESTICK RESERVOIR AND MORE INTRICATE BASE DESIGN, ALWAYS ON TALL RAISED FEET. IN ANY WAY THIS CANDLESTICK IS EXCEPTIONAL AND REPRESENTS A TRUE EXAMPLE OF THE EARLY EGYPTIAN REVIVAL CRAZE WHEN ALMOST ALL LIGHTING. THE CANDLESTICK IS 6 3/4 TALL, IT IS IN AN EXCELLENT CONDITION FOR IT'S AGE, THERE ARE SOME DINGS AND NICKS, NOTHING MAJOR, ALL CONSISTENT. WITH AGE, NO BRAKES OR MAJOR DAMAGE. Our unique collection of American "gone with the wind" lamps took many years to form. It is now for sale and currently awaiting new owner. Most of the lamps in our collection are impossible to find for sale anywhere. Qualified buyers will be invited to view and inspect the collection in person. We can also provide high resolution photos of each lamp in the collection with detailed description, condition report, and provenance.
