Beschreibung:

carved with high relief scrolls forming a pierced canopy, surmounted by a polychrome foliate scroll, entwined with branches, flowers and buds, 43cm wide, 112cm high ***This pair of South German girandoles with their rich expressive rococo carving are related to a group of pieces associated with the oeuvre of a group of carvers, designers and gilders working in the 1760's in and around Munich, and in particular at the Schloss Nymphenburg. Throughout the period white ground polychrome furniture and decorations gained in popularity. The Emperor Maximillian III was Prince-elector and Duke of Bavaria from 1745-1777, and it is under his guidance and artistic patronage that this taste became fashionable. He founded the Nymphenburg porcelain factory, and was a patron of Francois de Cuvillies, a pioneer of the rococo style. Another one of his circle was the musician Mozart. White porcelain which had its roots in Chinese blanc de chine, stylistically pervaded all areas of the decorative arts and the illustrated girandoles testify to the Emperor's influence in the sphere of the furniture.
