Pair of Antique Altar Candlesticks

ORIGIN: Tuscany, Italy
AGE: 19th century
DIMENSIONS: 7" diameter x 18 ½” h (with pricket 22 ½” h)
MATERIALS: Wood, iron


This petite pair of antique altar candlesticks is from Tuscany.  As is common with altar sticks, they are decorated only in the front – the only part that would have been visible in the church.  One foot was replaced some time ago – see photo of the bottom.  They have a beautiful patina and impressively long iron prickets.
