18th Century Spanish Baroque Silver Giltwood Altar Candlesticks

About

A matched pair of nicely carved wooden 18th century Spanish Baroque church altar candlesticks. When made, the wood would be painted with many layers of gesso, and then silver gilded. This surface is fragile, and these candlesticks have nicks and cracks in the gesso, and have lost small pieces of gilding. The silver is rubbed and scratched, creating a beautiful patina that attests to 200+ years of history. This Baroque style in large size was almost certainly made for use in a church.
