Pair of candlesticks
A pair of French gilt bronze candlesticks representing a child standing on a stem and holding a garland.Like under the Restauration, the decorative arts under Napoléon III are pleasant, kind to delight the public and not to exalt the heroism. A sober decor, reflecting the peace and sweetness of life follows the warrior symbols of the Empire although the prince-president tried to put into fashion this ornament.
