This is the single pair of two-branched candelabra presently known and registered, bearing a Brussels mark. This model of torch is also found on parisian design such as those by Jean Vannier or Jean-Charles Duchesne. The work of these candelabra is totally original and typical of the craft of the Belgian silversmith.
