Pair of Bronze Nubian Orientalist Candelabra by Charles Cumberworth

Gallery Price: £9,500

A fine pair of cast bronze candelabra as Nubian women holding flowers and leaves as candle holders, each raised on stepped black marble bases. Signed Cumberworth and stamped Daubree

Height 69cm 27in
Diameter 30cm 12in

Charles Cumberworth (1811 – 1852)

Signed to base. Born at Verdun, Cumberworth enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in 1829 and exhibited at the Paris Salon from 1833-1848. The majority of his output was women and children as well as allegorical figures. Susse Frères, were the sole foundry Cumberworth used after 1837. The foundry continues today.

Cumberworth would have licenced the foundry to produce and sell the statues, however the genuine pieces authorised by the artist reveal the foundry mark to the base. These bronzes are stamped Daubree for Alfred Daubree.

Alfred Daubree was a dealer of bronzes and jewellery who established his business in the 1850’s at 85 de la rue Montmartre. He acted as agent for Charles Cumberworth, Louis Menessier, Leopold Kampf, Barye et Cie, and Christophe Fratin.

Attributed to Michelangelo Maestri (Italian, d. 1812)
