Lovely pair of antique brass candlesticks with the shaft set with plaques of malachite and encased by the scrolling borders of brass. The arched base in the shape of an elliptical triangle sits on three points that form the feet and the candleholder itself is further ornamented at the top of the shaft with a draping elements of ribbons and bows in relief around the cup of the candle holder. The brass is has aged to a pleasing patina. Height of these candlesticks is 7.5". One is missing a ferrule underneath the splash guard. This can probably be replaced at an antique hardware store.
