As candles were important parts of any home, it is no wonder that special care was taken to design all kinds of candlesticks.
These handsome oak candlesticks were fashioned in the barley twist design, complete with removable cast brass drip trays for the wax candles for easier cleaning. Over the last century, the candlesticks have taken on a beautiful dark color and wonderful patina. They also have their old felt bottoms so that fine polished furniture would not scuff when they were moved about.
The cast brass tops that hold candles have a pleasing shape and design, adding another decorative element to the sticks. The sticks also have a wide base, making them less likely to tip.
They are in excellent condition, having been very well cared for over the last 120 or so years.
The bases measure 5-3/4 inches in diameter.
