Floral design, brass with pewter finish, stamped on bottom “Holland Brass Works” Chicago. 115. This design was catalogued 1939-1940 but item itself is not dated. Each candle holder is stamped the same. These are a matching pair in need of cleaning. Design is worn in places. They are still sturdy and appear to have had no repair or replacement of parts. Besides the obvious worn places I cannot assess fully without a cleaning- which should be done by an expert. I am happy to answer any questions you may have or if you need to know something particular I can take a look at for you.
Holland Brass Works located in Chicago known for quality and long lasting sturdiness and well crafted. I researched and found this identical piece on an sale house site sold in 2011 for $225. for the one piece. There are other similar candle holders but vintage Holland Brass Works are rare, especially in pairs! Though worn in places , I have been told a metal expert could restore to a degree if not original condition, then they could be restored to bring back a sharpness to the design. I would love to keep them but have to downsize.
These are collector pieces and priced accordingly and sold as a pair. They are sometimes described as altar candle stands. Holland Brass Works has a current website and a pair of this age and design has sold direct from them from $500.00 plus. I have priced to sell as a pair and at bargain price mindful of possible restoration.
Each weigh approximately 8 lbs.
I found these in the late 1990’s at a farm sale in the Midwest. There was no provenance- owner at the time thought they belonged to his deceased parents and he wasn’t aware of their existence until the inventory for the sale turned them up.
