Pair Raised Gold Candlesticks

This is a nice pair of candlesticks made by Meissen in the late 19th century. They remind me of their B-Form series with the raised and gilded design around the foot and bottom of the top part. They have a nice shape to them and are not overly large and the white and gold combination always pleases. Each stick is about 6 inches tall with a bottom diameter of about 3.5 inches. The top where the candle goes into has an inner diameter of 0.875 inches and is a good 1.25 inches deep. Eack candleholder is in good condition with a tiny bit of wear with one of them having some small chips along the top edges which have been gilded to hide them well. They are a true pair as one can see by their marks but oddly anough one has more gilding to the top than the other one. On one the gilding goes all the way to the undner edge while the other left that edge white. It's not really obvious when they are being used but I found it odd. Each candlestick is marked underneath with the under glaze blue crossed swords mark as shown as well as a blue 29. and the usual incised / impressed marks as shown. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $199
