These Candlestick holders are breathtaking. They are antique, Victorian period however have a very Art Nouveau feel. The detail is superb. They are solid bronze and have not been painted or touched up. They are completely original. They have 19th century hanging prisms. They have very deep and warm patina which has not been disturbed. They were purchased in France some 60 years ago from an antique store.
The holders stand 10 1/4" tall. They measure 5 1/4" across the widest portion of the base. There are 5 missing prisms and two that have small chips. They are replaceable and I have seen these for sale at many antique stores. I don't believe it would be too difficult to replace. On the very top where the candles will fit I believe one of the caps was replaced as it is slightly different than the other. It also comes out and the other is stationary. It was a perfect match really and it is not easy to detect. There are no other issues to note.
This pair dates Circa 1860 and have remained in remarkable condition. They would look wonderful on an alter, sideboard or perhaps an entryway table as I have them photographed. Questions are always welcome.
