Very lovely pair of antique Delft; English or Dutch, Candlesticks with Two - sided Girls in fancy bonnets salt cellars.. Each is fluted and has raised sections of motifs.. on a heavy rich white glaze that is tin coated. The Candlesticks have the same designs and painting techniques as the salt cellar.. The 3 painted stands have similar designs though made of wood and then painted in oil paint. Candlesticks are approximately 9" high ; Girls salts are7.2" tall and stands are 5" x 1 1/2". I researched; shown similar one on a web-site, company name starting with a B.. from the UK.. He has a bowl shaped object for $5,300.00 saying it is similar to one at the V & A museum # MN 3841 & A. The dealer's bowl has exact same designs and the exact same potting techniques.. All the research indicates 19th century.. .. typical faience features and a few very minor professional restoration to Candlestick bases. Reference: Book by Frank Britton " English Collection" on Delft.. page 70-71.
