Art Deco Chase Walter Von Nessen Chrome Candelabras Taurex Candlesticks:
Up for your consideration I have a complete pair of Art Deco "Taurex" candle holders designed by industrial designer Walter Von Nessen for the Chase Metalworks of Waterbury, CT. Von Nessen designed these in 1933 and they were manufactured from that year through 1937 when they were discontinued. The Centaur mark and "Chase" are imprinted on the underside of the removable candle sockets. These are the U-shaped, style number 24003. The candle inserts are removable. Two of the inserts are slightly bent. One of the bent ones has a hole drilled in the bottom. There is one small dent on one of the arms of one candelabra and a small cluster of dings on the base of the other candelabra. This one also has some pitting to the chrome plating on the arm. Both pieces have some minor scratches and brushmarks from use and age and cleaning. Walter Von Nessen (1889-1943), a leading proponent of the American Streamline Modern design movement, created many of his pieces for Chase from the copper tubing and brass fixtures already in production.
