Candlestick (one of a pair)

Master I. C. (probably Jean Court or Jean de Court)
After engravings by Heinrich Aldegrever German

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 544

The processions of infants on the drip pans were taken from engravings by the anonymous Italian Master of the Die (active ca. 1532). The labors of Hercules depicted on the repoussé medallions around the base of one of the candlesticks are after engravings by
the German Heinrich Aldegrever (1502–after 1555); gods of classical antiquity fill the medallions on the other example.
