Offered are a good size pair of Neoclasical form candlesticks made of bell metal c 1790-1810. These are push-up type and the push up mechanism on both works properly. As can be seen in the photos, the base was turned. Both have a polished patina finish. This classical form was very popular during that period. If desired, it would be possible to do a total polishing of the candlesticks for a brighter lustre "new' finish. I have left them with patina as some buyers would prefer that.
Dimensions: Height is about 10" and diameter if base is 4 3/8".
Condition: Very good. The surface of each is smooth, unpitted and without dents. There is only a tiny unnoticeable scratch to the top socket of one; this is just mentioned for accuracy. The turned surfaces and moldings are smooth and unworn. The push up mechanism is operational on both. These are ready for use.
Early period antiques are quite old, were made to be used, and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing flaw or repair. While this is normal and to be expected, I note any known issues in the condition description.
