Description
For sale from W&W Antiques is a beautiful pair of strongly designed German Arts & Crafts / Jugendstil brass candlesticks c. 1910-13, designed by Ignatius Taschner (1871-1913). - The candlesticks have a segmented jugendstil design with a hexagonal or honeycomb raised base section, providing symmetry. The candlestick stems are in ribbed graduated steps to a flat large 8 sided plate surrounding the candle holder. These are broad and stable in design (deceptively about equal in height and width) and make a clear arts and craft / secessionist / jugendstil design statement with many reflective surfaces to make the most of candle light. - They are crafted in four distinct sections of body pulled together by a central tie and bolt. - Taschner was a German sculptor, medalist, graphic designer and illustrator. - He studied from 1889 at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich. In 1903 Taschner became a lecturer at the Royal Arts and Crafts School in Breslau (now Wroclaw). By 1905 he had established a studio in Berlin, where he worked mainly as an architectural sculptor for new buildings by Ludwig Hoffmann. - These distinctive German designed candlesticks are a beautiful example of his stylistic work in the German Arts and Crafts. - Stamp marked on the bottom with the Marabou / Stork brand, which was the artist's stork in a triangle / monogram and Ges. Gesch. (registered trademark, protected by law). A beautiful, simple but strong symmetry in this distinctive jugendstil design. Candlesticks ready to be used in any setting.
