Description

This pair of candelabra demonstrates Fabergé’s commitment to a commercial balance between decorative and functional design. The pair was made by Fabergé’s chief silversmith, German-born Julius Rappoport, in Moscow, where the majority of gold and silver objects were crafted. Small in size, the pair may have been used in more intimate settings, as opposed to larger banquets or public gathering areas.
