French Louis XVI Bouillotte Lamp

Own the best with this French Louis XVI bouillotte lamp, early 19th century. The superb detail begins with the finial and continues to a central stem holding three candle arms by dolphins (the reference here is that heirs of France assume the title of le Dauphin), over a pierced basket-form base with fine detail picked out at each rim.  All is in dusty looking gilt bronze. The old painted dark green shade has gilt decoration. Later electrified.
   H. 26″, w. 7.5″ at the base, 13″ shade diameter.
Detail of base with dolphins and fluted stem.
