17th Century Spanish Candlesticks

17th Century Spanish Candlesticks

These delightful small sticks are quite rare for two reasons. While we see square bases on sticks similar to these with some regularity these are the first triangular based examples we have seen in years. And, the scrolled feet on this pair are not only a sophisticated design but very well executed.

This faceted stem design can sometimes be dated earlier, but we think the feet here indicate a date in the latter part of the 17th Century.
