Attributed to Cornelius & Company
This pair of three-light girandoles depicts a young boy seated in a rustic setting with his pet dog. The overall condition on this set is excellent retaining a superb period finish and the extra thick white marble bases. The candle cups and prism rings are of a pattern typically associated with the firm Cornelius and Company of Philadelphia.
