About

Gorgeous Viennese silver pair of tall candlesticks of finest manufacturing quality as well as of most elegant appearance.
These candlesticks were made during Viennese Empire period, circa 1790-1814. They are stunningly made in following manner:
Surface of both candlesticks having round form is smooth/they are attached to chased base (not filled!). Truncated cone shaft and vase-type sockets existing. Additionally, the sockets are edged by broad bands which protect from dropping wax.

Please note:
The candlesticks have three arms with three grommets which are connected to each other by amazingly bent struttings of finest original Empire style / the arms are removable so that we have one arm-candlesticks, too.
Finally, a stopper crowned by decoration consisting of flower's blossoms has to be used for extinguishing flames: it can be put into the grommet at top area.
