Jean DESPRES (1889-1980)

A rare pair of hammered silvered metal candelabra.

Excellent condition.

Many candelabras is various last years auctions with very high prices for some of them.
The pair I propose here is extremely rare. Perhaps unique for special order. No similar piece auctioned in the past !

Jean Desprès was a trained silversmith who participated in the renewal of the silversmith trade by removing excess ornamentation and creating more simple, solid pieces in silver and pewter but mainly in silver-plated metal, easily recognised by their hammered appearance. One can find this simplicity of shape and design in this silver-plated piece presented with its handles forming on body with the object, so typical of the designers style during the 1930's
