Presenting a rare and fabulous set of candle holders or candlesticks. These were made in Luneberg, Germany Circa 1930 by Herbert Zeitner. The sticks are made of 925 silver and have a brass or bronze finish over the silver. Zeitner was a prominent gold and silversmith, who lived from 1900 to 1988. His early works, which these objects represent, were done in the Art Deco, Art Nouveau and Bauhaus style. He was awarded numerous prizes and many of his works are on display in German Museums.
The set depicts angel musicians. One angel plays a harp, one a horn and one a banjo, or stringed instrument. They are marked on the bottom ZEITNER LUNEBERG and on the top 925. The style is very reminiscent of 1930's Art Deco art forms.
These candle holders are rare and highly collectible. They each have a height of 3 3/4" to 4". The horn player is slightly shorter. Their bases have a 2 1/8" diameter. Two of the sticks have a spike at the center to hold the candle firmly in place, with the banjo player missing the spike but otherwise in fine condition.
The pieces have a combined weight of 14.130 troy ounces. I did not try to polish them as I thought the natural patina was just lovely. They are all in fine condition, except for the missing spike, as previously mentioned.
