Antique Candlesticks

Recommended Posts

I thought that I’d shares some images of these simple yet superbly executed

antique wrought iron candlesticks. 25 ½ inches high. Age and country of origin

unknown. The shafts of triangular cross section taper from 1 ¼ to 1 1/8 inches

and are slightly convex across their faces. About two inches above the collars one can

make out seems suggesting that the two ends were worked separately and then

joined. The detailing of the feet and heart shaped terminals of the candle cup

supports are particularly nice. Extensive file work is visible beneath the

shaft’s patina. Simple yet majestic.IMG_7607.thumb.JPG.2113461fb2b6bed80e9fc

Oh my goodness. I might be able to winkle out the candle stick after enough tries, I have a 120* V swage on my block but I'd probably have to cheat the collar.

Funny you should say that Frank, I usually consider students to be at an intermediate level when they can make sets of near identical pieces.
