Awesome antique (probably French) altar / candlestick.
This is a very old piece an has lots of patina. It is easily 19th Century.
We have not made any attempt to clean the piece.
It is 23 1/2" tall.
The base is 8 1/2" wide.
It weighs 7 lbs. 4 oz.
Features 3 cherubs / putti on each of the three sides of it's base.
The base has 3 feet on it.
Great details all around. The piece is straight with no dents or loose pieces. It does have a great deal of age to it including darkening of the bronze and the greenish tarnish that old bronze gets. We have not even washed it. It can be cleaned at your option.
This was attained several years ago in a lot that included a piece of pewter from the 16th Century (Nurnberg Plate that we still have). It was truly an undiscovered treasure. It has been boxed away in our warehouse for 7 years and we just dug it out. It is priced very well for this quality of a relic.
