Pair of Large Silver Plated 5 Arm Regency Style Candelabras – circa 1910.
A tall pair of large silver plate and crystal four-armed candelabras, with an elevated center candle. The candelabras are decorated in the neoclassical manner, with chased linear and bead decoration, complemented by foliate ornament of acanthus on the cups, arms, columns and bases. Tapered columnar posts, topped with ribbon and laurel swags, support four winding, upturned and crossed arms, topped by cup-shaped foliate candleholders around a matching, elevated, columnar center. Each candleholder has a round bobeche beneath, surrounded by a dozen suspended rondelle and teardrop pendant, faceted crystals.
Large KPM Porcelain Oval Plaque “Odalisque” Signed Wagner
A lovely hand-painted on porcelain KPM plaque signed by Wagner. The title of the portrait is “Odalisque” – a woman with long flowing brunette hair and low cut red dress partially exposing a breast. The plaque is a good size measuring 10 3/4 inches high x 8 3/4 inches wide. The plaque is framed in a new frame and the oval cuts off display of some of the portrait including the signature. An original brass frame and red valour matte is also included but does not do the plaque any justice. Impressed KPM mark on back with Sceptre. Signed “Wagner” on bottom right. Frame measures: 16 1/4 inches high x 14 1/4 inches wide.
Early 19th Century European Oil Painting Of Woman and Children
This is a finely rendered oil painting by an unknown artist depicting a woman and her two small children seeking sanctuary from an approaching storm. Her daughter buries her face in her skirts and covers her eyes as the babe in arms looks over his mother’s shoulder, as the woman bends on one knee in supplication, poised to knock on a heavy wooden door. In the background, a cross stands on the edge of a wooded path, leading through the mountains. The sky above is dark and stormy. The little girl’s scarf appears to be blown by the wind. The canvas has been re-lined and the frame is 20th century.
Artist: Unknown. European.
Canvas measures: 24 inches high x 19 inches wide. Frame measures: 29.5 inches high x 24.5 inches wide.
Excellent Condition: Frame could use a little touch up that I will attend to before shipping.
