Step into the opulence of 18th-century France with our Bouillotte-inspired Candle Holder, a classic masterpiece that echoes the design aesthetics of the late 1700s. Drawing its name from the French card game "Bouillotte," this candle holder exudes sophistication reminiscent of the era.
Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, our Bouillotte Candle Holder showcases a brass desk base adorned with two or more candlesticks or a candelabra, reminiscent of the luxurious furnishings of the time. The distinctive short and squat silhouette of the candle shade adds an authentic touch, capturing the essence of traditional French design.
The inspiration for the Bouillotte Candle Holder harks back to the eponymous card game that held the fascination of French society in the late 18th century. In its original form, these holders were candle-burning marvels, featuring a bowl-shaped base for storing game chips. A central tube, surrounded by elegant candle holders, supported a metal shade. The ingenuity of the design allowed for the adjustable shade to descend gracefully, covering the burning candles as they diminished, shielding the players' eyes from direct candlelight.
Our modern Bouillotte-inspired Candle Holders embrace this historical design, featuring an adjustable shade that pays homage to the authentic functionality of the original holders. The timeless beauty and historical charm of our Bouillotte-inspired Candle Holder make it a statement piece, transporting you to the refined ambiance of 18th-century France. Illuminate your space with a touch of history and sophistication using our French-inspired Candle Holder.
