These two 5-branch solid silver candelabras, made by maison Boin-Taburet are iconic pieces of rocaille style furnishings. Made in the late 19th or early 20th century, these candelabras are the testimony of a strong infatuation at that time for Louis XV style furnishing. Boin-Taburet's creations confirm the popularity of rocaille style, while reinventing some of its codes.
Each branch of the piece is thoroughly adorned with acanthus leaves, as well as various organic ornamentations and ends with a subtly chiseled candle holder and drip tray.
Jeweller Emile Taburet, who participated in the 1880 Decorative Arts Central Union exhibit, and his son-in-law Georges Boins, antique dealer, became partners in 1880 and created maison Boin-Taburet together. They were awarded a bronze medal for their creations at the 1889 Exposition Universelle of Paris.
