Rare Antique French Wax Victorian Marie Antoinette & Louis Candle Christmas Doll:
Rare Antique Victorian Marie Antoinette and King Louis XVI wax figural handmade candles. Hand painted set -- so precious, lovely carved faces and white hair styles. Marie's hair is styled in an extravagant up do and Louis has a curled white wig and a back ponytail. Their matching teal blue outfits are stunning with ruffles and lots of detail. Marie has a large pink rose on her bodice and she is holding a ladies fan. They have painted pink and green rosettes on the pillar part. Wicks on top of their heads and unused. Very unusual and would be great to use for a Victorian Christmas vignette. I've never seen anything like them before!Good overall condition -- Marie has a crack on her neck, and Louis is bent a bit to one side. Some minimal loss of paint. Please see photos.Each candle Measures about 7 1/2" tall
Truly pieces of art!
