These wonderful antique Italian candlesticks were often used in churches. The fronts of the candlesticks or the parts that were seen, were always decorated and the backs were left plain. These are considered a “near pair” due to a slight height difference in the handles and one circular base is old silver paint versus old gold paint. These Italian candlesticks were European electrified at one point in time. They can be re-wired as small lamps or used simply as decorative accessories.
CONDITION: Some chips, cracks, losses to gilding as seen in photos
