A pair of four-light candelabra attributed to Reinhold Fredric Lindroth d.y.’s workshop, Stockholm ca 1820.

A very exclusive and unusual model. For four candles in matted and polished gilt bronze. The bell-shaped base with a leaf and pearl bar decoration and centered by a central stem in the form of a torch, decorated with bay leaves and palmettes and crowned by a flame. Curved candle arms with plant ornamentation ending with candle holders decorated with stylized four-leaf clovers.

The design of the candelabra directly connects to the bouillette lamps found in the royal collections at Rosendal, Rosersberg and Stockholm castles, all of which are considered to have been made by Reinhold Fredric Lindroth d.y., on behalf of King Karl XIV Johan. Obviously, the basic frame with light arms has been the starting point for making either bouillotte lamps, with adjustable painted tin shades, or as in this case a pair of candelabras. The candle holders also appear on candlesticks attributed to Lindroth.
