Presenting a pair of late 19th century Cantagalli Majolica candlesticks in the form of stylized winged monkeys, dressed in warrior clothing with helmets on their heads. Each is resting on a Dolphin on top of a socle. This is so very typical of the work of Cantagalli and his offspring, highly unusual and imaginative. These are quite impressive with the bright coloring of the costumes and pieces.
The candlesticks are truly imaginative and in very good, almost perfect condition. They are marked as shown and would be impressive anywhere you put them.
Size: 13 7/8” Height by 5 7/8” Diameter.
