A Pair of fantastic rare form late 18th century sand weighted tin candle sticks. Circa 1770-1800 with great old patina. Each candle stick has two candle sockets and a square drip pan below. This particular pair features a bent rod to be used for hanging. The cone shape at the bottom is filled with sand for stability. Weighted candle sticks don't come on to the market very often especially a pair. Truly the best example of early lighting that I have ever seen. If your a collector of early lighting these would make an amazing addition or make a great statement in a period home. Where ever they end up they will definitely be a conversation piece. Condition is great all solder joints are original, no bend or dents(see pics). Minor oxidation and pitting consistent with an item of this age. Please note the museum reference number on bottom of drip tray. Please be aware that these are hand made and the heights are slightly different one is 7"W x 29"H, other 7"W x 31"H. Don't miss out on these very rare early lighting devices.
