Amber's present arrived yesterday. She had sent me a McCoy mug and two Lily candlesticks. I prefer to see the sticks as 'birds' that have flown in from the US of A. Perhaps they are eagles?
The candlesticks that Amber sent are on the 'shed'. A lot of the collection is 'in the shed'. As new items arrive they are tested with other objects on top of the shed. They normally work together or can force change of the spread. In this display they join the Copier thick vases, the Goldscheider Lorenzl 'Adagio', the Bulova Frank Lloyd Wright, a Vallauris 'Fat Lava' vase and the little Hungarian by Anna Berkovits (Glauber Andorné).
I love these new sticks: they are design classics! (imho)
Ivar Ålenius-Björk are the initials on their base. The design is called Lilja. A pair is Liljan in Swedish. Ystad metall factory, Sweden.
Each HOLDER measures approximately: 8.75 in. width X 4.75 in. height
Base = 3 in. diameter

Björk Ivar Ålenius Sweden (1905 - 1978).
Ålenius worked as a sculptor, mostly known for bust portraits. One of his most famous pieces is a monument in Malmö, Sweden, in memory of lost sailors. Ålenius exhibited in Gothenburg 1945. His public ornaments can be seen in Trelleborg, Simrishamn, Ängelholm and Lund.

LJUSSTAKAR, 2 st, mässing, "Lilja", Ivar Ålenius Björk, Ystad metall, 1900-talets andra hälft.

Many thanks AmberRose!

    The eagles look awesome! They seem to have adjusted to life in Oz quite nicely. I was worried they wouldn't find any friends but they are already with the "in" crowd at the Shed. Let me know when they start speaking with an accent and using expressions like " G'Day" and "fair dinkum".
    You are very very welcome V and I look forward to finding the next gift for you!
