Pompeii to Paris

In the late 18th & early 19th Century Europe was enthralled with the recent excavations of Pompeii & Herculaneum. Bronze candlesticks and lamp stands like this were all the rage.
In France this classical revival was known as Empire style and in England, Regency.
 Our pair of bronze lamps were made in France in the mid 20th Century as electric lamps.
27 inches tall.
