Pair of opaque light blue alabaster pressed lead glass candlesticks; hexagonal socket on standard composed of three progressively larger baluster knops on a hexagonal pedestal base; hollow interior with pontil mark.
Candlesticks of this form were reproduced in the 1920s, but the wear on the base and the deterioration of the alabaster suggests that these are original.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
