Pair of Midcentury Modern sterling silver candlesticks. Made by Tiffany & Co. in New York.
Each: cylindrical socket with flared rim mounted to c scroll with bead and scroll support in turn mounted to slightly raised circular base. The support and its reflection form a heart. A clever use of reflection as a design element.
Hallmark includes postwar pattern no. 23421. One candlestick has director’s letter M (1947-56). The other has director's letter L (1956-ca 1965).
Dimensions: H 4 x D 4 1/8 in. Total weight: 11 troy ounces. BO626
