This pair of flint glass candlesticks retains the original pewter or Britannia metal inserts. They are of single piece molding, and are probably from one of the Pittsburgh glass manufacturers, ca. 1865. They have round bases with tapered hexagonal columns; sockets are a flared "tulip" shape. A handsome pair of antique candlesticks.
