Pair of early 19th Century Tall Brass Candlesticks of elegant proportions, the drip pans above nozzles and balusters on long tapering stems with spreading supports onto dished circular bases.
Each has been cast in 2 pieces with cut screw threads to lock the stem and base together. These are beautifully crafted candlesticks with heavy cast and spun bases, crisp edges and clean cut detail.
Quality brass. Deeply patinated bases.
This style of candlestick has been popular through the ages and is a traditional model.
