I have never had a pair like this...these are about 9" tall but more impact than most as they have a fantastic look and presence. They are cut and faceted from top to bottom and then the hanging prisms are jeweled with small colored glass beads. The tops are about 5" diameter and are sharply cut with radiant brilliant cuts as shown, then the stems and bases are facet-diamond cut. They have cut-outs in the bases to run wires, but there are no other indications of electrification as all holes were original and fire polished. That helped me date these to the late19th century. The prisms are fantastic and very unusual, and they are excellent overall condition with some light rough corners/edges, but overall better than expected for the age. One prism has gone missing and easy to find a standard flatbar prism to just to fill the spot and turn away. These are a brilliant and a very different set! Very fine quality.
