A fine and rare Minton porcelain candelabra group c.1835-1840. Both figures are very finely modelled as classical gardeners and superbly decorated in enamels in incredibly detailed patterns to the clothing with lots of bright gilding to embellish. The girl is modelled as a flower seller with her apron full of individually modelled flowers and leaves and holding a small posy in her left hand. Her male companion has a basket of flowers and fruit under his arm and holding out a pear in his right hand. The column in the centre modelled as bull rushes, gilt enrichments and blue, the oval base with scrolls in relief, cobalt blue ground and gilt callioute decoration giving a marbled effect.
Condition: A few very minor typical losses to the flowers, otherwise in excellent condition with no damage or restoration.
The candelabra branch now sadly lacking. This would have originally been attached to the column in the centre between the two figures.
