For some reason I have a collection of candlesticks. Candles? Candlelight? Romance? Nostalgia? Perhaps they are more available? They are cheap – I like cheap! No one loves them anymore? Like decanters, they are superfluous in the new millennium?
I found these at the Rozelle markets about five years ago and brought them home for a clean, aal that was needed was just a wipe with a silver cloth - that worked, suggesting silver-plated ware. There are no identifying marks at all. Lots of work in them, however: two rings with 36 struts welded top and bottom, a platform for the candle holder attached with fine welds I think. 7 cm (2.75") across at the bottom and 9.5 cm (3.75")at the top. They are 10 cm (3.9") tall.
They reminded me of the Warren Platner furniture (1919 – 2006) for Knoll. Has anyone any idea about who made these?
