Antoine DARIULE wanted to create a small candle holder that gives the impression that a candle is levitating. This visual effect is possible thanks to a brass tip on which the candle is fixed.
This candlestick takes its name from Pierre-Philippe Thomire (1751-1843) French sculptor, bronzier, founder, chaser and gilder. One of the most remarkable bronze makers of his generation, he is recognized for his production of bronze furniture under the Ancien Régime. Under the Empire, he raised this profession to its highest level of quality, while creating in the first years of the 19th century , an industrial company whose influence was European.
