Pair of candelabra, Johannes Schiotling, 1772

silver (metal), h 35.5cm × w 37.5cm × d 13.7cm × w 2326gr. 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.

On display in room 1.7
