The Thursday Three- beyond the candelabra


Mmmm……..maybe should have dusted first?

Housework way down on list again; note to self, must do some before Christmas.

I bought these 19th c patinated metal candelabra for French village house because they are going into quite a simple and pared back dining area and need to be unfussy- see photos above & below

Art deco frame has barbola work decoration. I have a couple more barbola framed mirrors packed for France.

We will not be taking this large glass fronted book case/cabinet or it’s accompanying dining table and chairs (see below) because they will not work at our simple French house.Table extends to eight easily has brass footed claw feet on central pedestal. There are four chairs, plus two carvers with arms.

Hard to part with because I do love them & I really hope someone else will !

Maybe in  more formal dining room? (Weirdly,  they look perfect here in UK  )

Anyone out there who would be interested in giving a new home to these slightly well worn but character pieces please contact me for more photos & dimensions….
