These charming candlesticks have a lovely appeal to them both because of the subject matter but also the beauty of the material. The Italian word "putto" is singular while the more familiar "putti" refers to two or more putto and means a naked infant child so beloved of the Italian Renaissance painters. This particular pair of candlesticks is unusual in featuring a facing pair of figures and means two individual castings were required to achieve the pose of raised hands appearing in opposition to the other. Because most pairs become separated by the passage of time it is always of great value to find a pair that remains intact. The wonderful expression of the bodies and the singular pose of one hand holding aloft the candle nozzle while using the other hand for balance gives these candlesticks a sense of sculptural immediacy and visual impact. The patina on the bronze is especially gorgeous and the fact that the figures are fully modeled means these candlesticks were originally designed to be placed upon a table where they could be admired from any direction. less
