Pretty three light candelabra from Sitzendorf, late 1800's. Standing 16" tall, the circular base is decorated with applied flowers, gilding and earthen hues. A putto stands at an anvil, forging a heart with a heavy mallet. A twining leafy vine grows up the central branch of the candelabra, bursting with multiple applied flowers. The two side arms of the candelabra are similarly decorated with the floral leafy vine. The colors are subtle and delicate. A lovely piece! The strongest color is the red of the heart.
Condition: very good. There is one small chip on the putto's apron, which is pictured below.
Dimensions: 16" tall, 10" wide and the base is 4" diameter.
Marks: Sitzendorf mark, russet numeral 31 in overglaze and incised numeral 383.
