Two Italian 18th Century Altar Candlesticks

AGE: 18th century
DIMENSIONS: Smaller candlestick: 4.5" diameter x 17.5" h; Larger candlestick: 6" diameter x 19" h (height is to tip of iron pricket)
MATERIALS: Gilded wood; iron
CONDITION:  Very good; wear and minor repairs consistent with age and use


Two delicately carved and gilded wood Italian altar candlesticks that while are not an exact pair, certainly belong together. A gorgeous aged gold patina has developed over the years. These candlesticks are decorated only on the front, as is typical, and sit on tripod bases.
