French antique candlestick with ornate detailing, an elegant addition to your home.
The beautiful art nouveau design is well cast with good detailing in a silver coloured metal which appears to be pewter, although I can find no mark. It is in good condition and stable on its widly spaced decorative feet. The metal would polish if required.
The stem has a piece of green marbeled effect segment which is very attractive.
The bowl of the candlestick has a clay like substance sealing it, added after manufacture, I have often seen this in French candlesticks and I think it is to stop wax dripping down to the surface beneath. It is not visible when a candle is in place. This stick can take a wide candle. There is a small chip at the base of the green material which is not prominent.
It measures 18.5cm or 7.25" tall
