A fine and weighty pair of early 17th century pricket (spiked) candlesticks, heavily cast with deep vigourous engraving on two sides of each stick, constructed from three sections; the three-footed base, balustered stem and drip pan united by the threaded spike running through to the base.
Variously ascribed to Spain, Italy or Low Countries; always to circa 1620/1650.
These would appear to be of the same provenance as our item 2931 which bear the same engraving although the pricket is of a different design. 12.75 in exc. spike
