Offered here is an interesting pair of brass candlesticks that have been patinated. The color, I should say colors, are deep and mysterious and very beautiful. They range from charcoal to light charcoal, blue, green, iron red and ochre and give the candlesticks kind of a "refined industrial" look, if that's not too much of a contradiction in terms. They are very handsome, quite substantial and are 9.5" tall and 6" at the base.
This unique Iranian brass vase has a traditional Ghalamzani (Carved Persian Metalwork) design. The farming scene is an unusual theme but the etching is very well detailed. Meticulously hand carved, the fabrication of this type of metalwork is a dying art. Measuring 21" tall by 12" across, and weighs eight pounds, this piece is surprisingly solid. This piece is estimated to be made in Iran 40 to 60 years ago.

The cerulean blue and engraved brass top has an inset with a green ground. The bottom is all hand engraved as well, in a larger pattern. The brass has a nice patina and feels good in the hand...
