Not my usual fare, but still, I couldn't walk away from this rather good op shop find. This pair of Venetian glass candlesticks are made from a mix of pale pink & clear glass with gold leaf inclusions. The stems are shaped like stylised dolphins. The glass is very thin & they are extremely delicate - quite astonishing to think they survived the often rough & tumble fate of being boxed up & donated to charity.
Slight variations between the size of the pair, but they sit very nicely together. The height is 13.5 cm tall. My guess is that they date from the mid 20th century.
