This Japanese vintage pair of shokudai or candlestick are used alter fittings. They are made of a combination of lacquered bronze and brass and decorated with the the motif of a Kamon. The kamon is a very popular symbol or -mon in Japan representing the phoenix- often mistaken for a crane, sometimes by myself. Historically first in China, it is also now used as a lucky symbol in Japan. Overall, the shokudai are in very good condition. The tops has some candle wax stains and wear. One of them has several spots of loss on the middle back from candle wax, the other some on the front. I unpacked then repacked them without realizing I had not saved their size, but this is a good estimate until unpacked again.

SIZE: Approximately 7 in high and 3 in in diameter at widest
