Lovely and rare to find antique candle stand.from a family originally from Germany. This piece is of fine lustrous brass with beautiful Arts & Crafts design with Art Nouveau influence and in very good condition. On the back is an old family label identifying it as "School of McIntosh, circa 1878, Scotland" and a label from a store. We did some research and did find a similar piece in a museum in Europe; and a similar piece in a shop in England; both with similar identification. The McIntosh school is of course from Renee McIntosh, one of the most important artists in the Arts & Crafts movement in Europe. This beauty measures 16" tall, 7 & 1/4" side and 4 & 3/4" deep at the base. Lovely patina to the metal, and we did not clean or polish this for the photos.
