Silver and Metal Work ~ JEAN DESPRES PAIR OF CANDLESTICKS

JEAN DESPRES PAIR OF CANDLESTICKS

Jean Despres was one of the most important French Art Deco designers, designing both metal objects,and extra-ordinary jewelry. 

This simple and elegant pair of candlesticks exhibit several of Despres' favorite design elements - reeding, hammered surfaces, and the very chic "gormette" chain. They are in silvered metal - Despres seldom made objects in silver. 

From the Primavera Gallery collection of fine objects by Jean Despres and other important French Art Deco designers.
