Antique Dollhouse Candelabra French Miniature 800 Silver Candle Holder Georges Fechoz


Brand Etsy

This is a wonderful antique dollhouse miniature made of French 800 silver in the form of a candelabra or five arm candle holder. The piece measures 7/8 in diameter across the top and has a height of 1 3/8. The piece is stamped with the 800 silver guarantee for small items, the boars head or tete de sanglier - difficult to make out, but the shape of the cartouche identifies it. The stem is also stamped with the makers mark that I think belongs to Georges Fechoz - GF with a rose bush between the two letters. It is in very good condition with no noted defects - I only polished the stem in order to read the marks. Miniatures meant for dollhouses were a specialty item for 19th century silversmiths known as toy men - the attention to detail on this tiny piece demonstrates the skill of the maker.attractive piece, great addition to a dollhouse decor..
