Big Antique Gothic 1800's Pewter Baroque French 53cm Candlesticks altarsticks For SaleBIG PAIR CARVED BAROQUE ANTIQUE PEWTER PRICKET CANDLESTICKS ALTAR TAPERSTICKS
A rare pair of GOTHIC carved Pewter CHURCH altar sticks or candle holders ( Kandelaber, Chandelier, candelabre ) , with Baroque manner tripod feet and scrollwork. Very well carved and turned, these tapersticks are not hallmarked, but that is not unusual being made for the church . An iron prickett top holds the wide wax candles onto a turned pewter column support with neoclassical and baroque scrollwork. Raised on three Queen Ann cabriole feet. Originally they would have been weighted with something inside to prevent them being knocked over , but this has obviously been removed at some stage, hence the interior underneath looks clean ( Patina) They are however around 1 kg each so substantially heavy enough. With over more than 100 odd years of age, they have had a few dints ( see all images below) and being pewter this could easily be straightened out, but we have left them as found as I think it adds to their charm. They do stand very straight and true. I would put these as French but definitely European early 19th century or even earlier origin.
You are offerding on THE PAIR , not per each.
Imaging what they would look like all polished!

offerding Tip: More and more I am getting complaints from buyers saying that they really wanted my item but were outoffer in the last few seconds. They were 'sniped'. Sniping means placing a offer in the closing seconds of an sale.
There is a way to protect yourself from snipers and prevent being outoffer at the last moment. If you offer the absolute maximum you are willing to pay, 's proxy system will do the work for you.
Human nature sometimes makes us resist making the highest offer within our spending limits, but proxy offerding does work. There is a common misconception that snipers always win. The truth is that they don't. To win, they must outoffer you. By placing a proxy offer at your maximum limit, someone else can outoffer you only if they are willing to spend more for the item than you are.
If someone places a last-second offer that isn't high enough, they almost never have enough time to get back in and place a winning offer before the sale ends.
WE WILL SHIP WORLDWIDE, whenever possible.
