Bronze & Ormolu - Glass Lustre Candlesticks

Candlesticks adorned with cut glass faceted lustres or prisms were popular in the early 19th century as the lustres sparkled attractively in the flickering candlelight. When smaller ones were placed on a mantelpiece in front of the mirror, the light reflected back into the room. As with plain candlesticks, our lustre candlesticks come in a variety of styles both on simple supports and ornamented with elaborate & highly varied decoration. Some have a single light, some are candelabra with 2 or 3 branches all bearing glass prisms.
