This pair of antique candlesticks is just lovely. The patina is warm and invites touch.
They are nicely sized and just under 8" tall (7 7/8") with bases that are 2 5/8" across.
They are made from spun brass and the detailing is clear and not excessively worn. Both push-up mechanisms are intact and working with ease.
Both are quite "clean" on the underside and are in especially good condition for their age. These would have been in use daily when new!
We see pairs of similar age from time to time, but both with working pushup mechanisms is not common.
Both are straight and don't lean. (Pictures were a challenge to show that, but they ARE straight.) Pretty amazing considering they were new in the 1800's!
7 7/8" (20cm) tall with 2 5/8" (6.5cm) base
(We've seen an identical pair elsewhere recently on the internet that weren't as clean nor was the pushup mechanism complete on both - listed for $500!)
