Description


A pair of attractive creamware cluster-column candlesticks used by the Kennedys in their Georgetown home. The candlesticks, most likely continental from the 19th century, each measure 12″ high with the square bases measuring 4.5″ on each side. Each has a scroll-molded flaring nozzle (restored) supported on four clustered columns with fleur-de-lis ornaments around the top and bottom, and is perched on a stepped square base. There are also wax remnants at the bottom of each holder. In fine condition, with aforementioned restoration and some small chips and areas of discoloration. Famous for her impeccable taste in interior decor—which left a lasting mark on the White House, as she immediately beginning a revitalization of the drab interior upon her arrival in 1961—Jackie kept these candlesticks, used to decorate her and John’s Georgetown home, her entire life. A stunning artifact from the elegant First Lady’s personal estate. Provenance: From the collection of John Strangi, purchased through Sotheby’s 1996 auction of The Estate of Jacqueline Kennedy.
