Gorgeous and rare pair of bronze candleholders with a vining bronze branch and floral candle socket, wrapped around a large cameo type marine gastrodod shell. Perched on each stem is a bronze song bird with the back inset with a cowie shell. Crawing along each= stem are two bronze snails with real gastropod shells on their backs, in very good condition with most of the gilding gone and one snail has a chipped shell and one broken antennae. It is unsigned and one measures about 7" x 4 1/2" x 7 3/4" high and the other about 7 5/8 x 7" wide.
This is from the estate of a local woman who was a writer and traveled the world and had an amazing collection.
