Provenance

The Rothschild family, Paris

 

A magnificent French silver table suite by Maison Odiot comprising a set of four 10-light candelabra and a set of four 2-tier cake stands en suite.

 

Two-tier dessert stands on triform bases on lion claw supports beside escutcheons engraved with the arms of the Rothschild family, applied with three seated female figures below a glass dish from which issues a mask-embellished vase-shaped section on pedestal base supporting a smaller glass dish centred by a kneeling Cupid on an elaborate swag-decorated pedestal.

 

There were two French branches of the Rothschilds, a Jewish family which had originated in Frankfurt and spread throughout Europe with further branches in Italy, Austria and the United Kingdom where they became ennobled, influential and well-connected bankers with an interest in the arts. James Mayer de Rothschild (1792-1868) a financier who acquired in 1860 the Chateau Lafite vineyard and his nephew, the London-born Nathaniel de Rothschild (1812-1870) who moved to Paris in 1850 to work with his uncle and who acquired in 1853 a vineyard in the Gironde at Pauillac which became Chateau Mouton Rothschild, one of the best-known labels in the world.
