For your consideration is this antique pair of gold gilt Florentine alter candlesticks. These candlesticks are 29" tall and the base is a tripod of feet, with 6" between each foot. Dorothy had these in her apartment in New York City for 55 years. The harsh radiator heat in winter and lack of A/C in the summer combined with a lack of dusting has reduced these once noble alter pieces to echos of their former selves. The gilt has fallen off and continues to be a problem. One candle holder itself is broken in half and a number of decorative buttons are missing. The petal of one foot is missing 1/3 of its length. If you purchase these, they will arrive tightly wrapped so any further gilt loss will be in the wrapping. Despite their current state, these still make a statement.
