A stunning pair of gilded Italian candlesticks from the nineteenth century (possibly earlier). They were sourced in Genoa. The gold leaf is applied to one half of each candlestick - this was done to save the precious gilding and applied only to the visible side.
Condition and patina consistent with age.
