A pair of fascinating candlesticks, the bases and stems wrapped with sweeping grooves and engraved with swags and flowers. The stems of these candlesticks are seamed, and they attach to the bases with coarse threaded screws. Residue of silver in the grooves suggests that these were originally silvered.

Probably Continental (France?), ca. 1750

Diameter of base: 5 ¼”; Height: 9”
