Pair of Tall 19th Century Brass Twist Candlesticks.
A large tall pair of 19th century brass twist candlesticks. Each brass candlestick is a delightful entanglement of two strands of brass dancing together to the candle holder and base of the pedestal. It’s unusual design and shape is what makes this pair a delight for holding candles.
A lovely pair of 19th century brass candlesticks that would be perfect for brightening up any home decor, or space.
Excellent condition: No dents in the brass (minimal surface scratches and small oxidation on the pedestals–see close-up images for details)
A lovely French brass carriage clock that has chimes on the hour and the half hour as well as a dial for setting an alarm.
This travelling carriage clock also has it’s original leather travel case. The case is fitted to the clock’s size and has a door that slides up and removes to show the face of the clock while allowing it to still stay safe in it’s case.

The back shows 3 windings for the springs – 1 for the time, 1 for the chime and the 3rd for the alarm.
