Fine quality hand-wrought Arts & Crafts candlesticks are in short supply, so we're delighted to offer this pair for your consideration. They come from England and date from the early years of the Arts & Crafts period (mid-19th century), since they have the look favored during the Victorian Gothic and Renaissance Revivals. Notice the middle section with its elaborate pattern of repousse' beading, swags and spade-shaped Aesthetic Movement leaves. That central portion must have lead at its core, because it's quite heavy and tiny areas of surface loss show silver color beneath. Other sections are predominantly of solid copper, with some accents of brass. We've left the areas of verdigris patina in place, since they demonstrate great age, but those can be polished off if you prefer a brighter look.
On elaborate 4 1/8-inch round scalloped bases with repousse' scrollwork in high relief, the candlesticks rise to a total height of 6 1/2 inches. Elsewhere online, a similar pair - an inch shorter, much less ornate and many years younger - are offered at the English equivalent of $375, so ours represent excellent value.
