Two candle stands guéridons, Anonymous, c. 1700

wood (plant material), h 147.5cm × d 46.0cm × d 41.0cm. More details

These tall candle stands closely resemble designs by Daniël Marot and drew inspiration from the French court style of the late 17th century. They were probably commissioned by someone in the circle of the stadtholder’s court in The Hague. Such stately, gilt showpieces would have found an appropriate place there.

On display in room 2.22
