UP FOR sale:
2ANTIQUE SOLID BRASS JUDAICA LION OF JUDAH CANDLESTICKS CANDELABRA
The featured items represent two Shabbat candle holders that look almost identical but one is a bit shorter then the other. Both candlestick measures 6 1/4" at the widest points and 3" in diameter at the bases. The marked one is about 11 3/4" tall and the unmarked 11 1/2".
Both of the three-light candelabrum are hand casted from solid brass and feature round, slightly domed bases with simple banding and scrolled framework with Rampant Lions Of Judah. The drip plates and the sockets are removable. The multi faceted stems featurevarious turnings and 8 sided knops and are also detachable from the scrolled frames and the bases. The design of the stems are almost identical but if look closely to the picture with the two candlesticks next to each other you will see a slight different in the details.
The taller candle holder is marked on the bottom with " NY BRASS" and "...MALL CS BASE". I could not fully read the markings because they are not very well struck and because of theage on the metal. The other candlestick is not marked or at least I could not find anything.
I would assume that NY means New York but I could be wrong. Anyway, this particular style of Shabbatiawas handmade in USA, Poland and maybe other countries by Jewish immigrants in the late 1800's and very early 1900's.
The items come in overall good condition for their antique age with normal metal wear like pitting, tarnishing, small patina and verdigris. I believe with the proper solution you can bring them back to their shiny look or leave them the way they are if you want to keep the pieces with their aged appearance.
The Sabbath Candelabra will make a gorgeous addition to any collection. Rare and valuable candle holders that can adore any Jewish home!
Feel free to ask for details or additional pictures.
HAPPY offerDING & GOOD LUCK!!!
