Pair of 18th Century Italian CandlesticksSKU: mg13 by InteriorBoutiques
Superb pair of tall carved wooden Candlesticks from an Italian church.
Dating from the late 18th century, the pair are wonderfully and intricately hand carved probably by a local artisan woodcarver.
In reasonable condition with wear and imperfections from age and usage including some minor repairs to the feet, the candlesticks have carved acanthus and shell motifs and show traces of silver leaf amid different layers of paint and underlay.
The ancient candlesticks stand on tripod feet and have their original inset iron spikes.
From Florence in Northern Italy.
Circa 1780 – 1820.
Measuring 31″ tall overall.
