Pair of 12" Tall Brass Antique Classic Beehive Candlesticks

Typically seen only in the 8-9" range, these are unusually tall and a great find at 12"!!

You will be receiving these in original 'as found' condition meaning that they bear witness to 100-200 years of use. The aged patina remains as we have not polished or had them polished. As you will see from the photos, one base has spots of verdigris that only come with age.

While both candlesticks are in excellent overall condition (no dents or other signs of abuse) they both are missing the original pushup mechanisms that allowed the spent part of the wax candle to be easily ejected.

The finish and missing pushup mechanisms have been carefully taken into consideration in the pricing. If these were in pristine condition, they would be priced in the $400-600.00 range due to their age and size. Naturally, we cannot ask that much for them. They are priced for their functionality, classical form, and decorative possibilities. Because of their height, they will be an outstanding addition to any display on a table, mantle, or in a larger grouping.

Very heavy at 45 ounces (2.13 pounds).

We have listed several other pairs of brass candlesticks and may we suggest that you look at those as well (see the last photo for a grouping of them).
