Vintage FRENCH Gilt Metal & Jeweled Religious Candle Holder/Votive Holder
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1950 or so
ITEM: More than likely from France, makers of the most beautiful religious items imaginable, here's a gilt metal candle holder/votive holder that is completely jeweled on all sides. At the base of the holder, is a different religious symbol - a cross, an empty panel, a Sacred Heart and an IHS. Around the middle of the filigree container are many crosses (same design).
CONDITION: Excellent with a high color of gold to the piece. All the jewels are present and the piece does not appear to have been used though there is some light discoloration near the seams of the decorative border along the base of the panel that would hold the candle. The inside of the container has a bezel edge in which to hold the candle in place. Lower base does move around freely - it's just the way the holder was made.
METAL CONTENT: Brass? or Base Metal? I know not.
HALLMARKS: None that I can find.
SIZE: Stands just under 6-1/2" high' width is about 3-1/2". The candle that is need looks to be about 2" wide.
WEIGHT: Lightweight as the piece is all filigree and light metal.
FINAL COMMENTS: I don't think they make them like this anymore!
