Circa 1889 - 1925 this Candelabra pattern No. 15 was made very early during Fostoria's history. It has six separate parts most of which have metal fittings that screw together to make a complete candelabra. These metal fittings were used primarily on early pieces and are part of the high-end quality and craftsmanship of these early candelabra's. There are two candle cups which have numerous chips along the rimmed base right above the metal that screws into the arm. The top rims and cup that hold the candle is without chips or cracks. The two-handled arm is perfect and has metal both for the candle cups and where the arm screws onto the base. There are two bobeches (wax catchers) - one has a minor flat chip on the ring edge where the cups fit, but very minor. The prisms hang onto the bobeche and there is only one missing. Many have small nicks and one is chipped, but I will include two extra since you can still find these old parts. Personally I would replace the chipped and leave the one over the arm off on each bobeche. The base is fine - it does have some chips under the finely polished foot which do not affect stability. I feel you will be pleased with this early hard-to-find candelabra and I have discounted based on the issues.
