A fine pair of silver candlesticks probably made in Italy, and retailed by the famous Chicago firm of C.D. Peacock c.1960. The firm was founded by Elijah Peacock in 1837 as a watch and jewelry store. In 1889 the company was bequeathed to Elijah's son Charles Daniel Peacock, hence the name C.D. Peacock from then to the present day. Various Italian firms became the makers of jewelry, watches, silver items, and gifts over the years.
The candlesticks are in excellent condition with only the minor wear associated with age. The neoclassical details are exquisite, such as the Greek key design on the upper rim. Perhaps the most prominent feature are the talons on raised circular plinths. The candlesticks are 10.5"tall and have a base diameter of 5". They are hallmarked on both the base and the lower rim as shown in the pictures. No monograms. Bases not weighted.
