Western Europe, France, ca. early to mid 19th century CE. A lovely pair of cast-brass altar candlesticks, also known as prickets, with a tripod base resting on abstract, paw-shaped feet. The lower body of each stick is triangular and holds a threaded tang projecting from beneath the upper body. The upper bodies have a multi-lobed presentation which tapers gradually to a flared wax basin with a conical, candle-holding point. Size: 5" W x 12.375" H (12.7 cm x 31.4 cm).
