Flutes & Pearls
Introduced in the summer of 2000, Flutes & Pearls is a reproduction and adaptation of an 1821 candlestick base design by Mr. Karl Friedrich Schinkel. In decorative arts references, "Flutes" are sculpted parallel indentations and "Pearls" are repeated raised beads. The combination makes for a sparkling effect. The history of this design and its application begins in 1821, when Karl Freidrich Schinkel (1781 - 1841) began publishing a portfolio collection of Classical designs which was destined to determine the direction of the decorative arts throughout Europe for many years.
