Pair of candelabra, Johannes Schiotling, 1772

Pair of candelabra, Johannes Schiotling, 1772

zilver, h 35.5cm × d 37.5cm. More details

These three-branch candelabra are early examples of the consistent application of Neoclassicism in Amsterdam art. The stem is shaped like a Corinthian column. This Classical order is identifiable by the capital, the column’s crowning element with acanthus leaves. Many other parts of the candelabra feature the same kind of foliage.
