A beautiful pair of 19th century Ottoman candlesticks, gilt metal and hand painted in a typical Ottoman fashion.
Beautiful design of the candlesticks themselves with ornate embossing and engraving throughout the design.
Shaped and flared sconces with enlarged dome bases, they are lightweight, made from a heavily gilded metal, they have been hand painted in reds, blues, yellows.
The painting is a matte finish and fairly primitive in its application, it is flaking away however the beautiful shiny gilt metal shows through.
Downturned lotus drip trays.
They once had some hanging decoration pierced through the sconces but this has gone though it in no way detracts from the overall look.
A very fine pair indeed, some signs of age and wear, one split to the top of one, flaking paint and a couple of dings.
4" diameter at base
