Cherub candlestick by Auguste Moreau Spelter, 19th century
Signed in the base Aug Moreau
Good antique condition with minor signs of age and wear to the spelter but still has all of its absolute charm
Auguste Moreau 1834-1917 was a French sculptor best known for his figurines. His allegorical Art Nouveau works often depicted women, children, cherubs, and historical figures adorned with floral motifs and ornaments, and were influential to other artists working at the time. Born in Dijon, France to a celebrated family of sculptors, he regularly exhibited his work at the Paris Salon from 1861 on. The artist died in 1917 in France.
