A pair of 18th Century antique Italian brass altar church pricket candlesticks.
These tall hand crafted brass church altar candlesticks are supported on a triangular base with a pair of cherubs detailed on the front.
They have a certain amount of wear to the patina consistent with age and use and would probably clean up to reveal the brass although I've left them as I found them as I personally like the blackness to the metal. One of the prickets has been broken in the past but this still allows for candles to be held within the plates on the top.
Measurements are 54cm H x 19cm W, the remaining undamaged prickett measures 13cm H.
