Victorian gilt and bronze candelabra

We were asked to restore this pair of large early Victorian gilt-lacquered and patinated-bronze seven light candelabra ready to be auctioned. They had been in storage for many years and the  metalwork had become very tired and the candelabra had unfortunately lost a couple of its metal castings. By making moulds of the remaining metal pieces we were able to cast new brass pieces and colour them to match. They were re-gilded and bronzed before selling at Christie’s auction – Works of Art from the Collection of H.R.H. The Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon in 2006.
