Pair of 18th Century Italian Altar Candlesticks in Repousse Brass And Wood

About

A pair of 18th century Italian altar candlesticks with repoussé brass work over wood. They can be made into table lamps by request at no extra charge. Repoussé is a metalworking technique in which a malleable metal is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create a design in low relief. Countryside chapels and small village churches could not afford solid metal or gold decorated altar candlesticks so they would have candlesticks made by local artisans using painted wood and decorated with thin brass to emulate solid brass or bronze.
