A pair of quite unique and beautiful pricket candlesticks made of very heavy cast brass. Here we have 2 female figures with serpentine tails and wings. I believe these to be the mythical Melusine creature of Celtic and French folk lore. The 2 brass castings are superb and originally were part of the decoration of a grand piece of furniture, such as a sideboard. They were removed and have been mounted on nice oak bases as support and given pricket tops so they are decorative and very functional. This means that these are the only pair of candlesticks of this design to be found anywhere. They are large, impressive, very heavy and a great conversation piece. Age wise, I believe they are mid 19th Century, possibly earlier.
