I found these unique candlesticks, by Arthur Court Designs, at the same antique show that I found the Tiddledy Winks game at. The vendor didn't know anything about them and I managed to get these for $25. They were issued in 1977 by Arthur Court Designs and referred to as "Handstandles". They released these handstandles in the form of a Rabbit, Lion, Frog, Monkey and a Dog. As you can see, I have all except for the dog. If I locate the dog handstandle I'll add it to this set. They're solid bronze, but I'm not sure what type of wood the ball is made from. These are all marked on the bottom with the Arthur Court Designs hallmark.
A BIG thank you to our CW friend kwqd for finding that these are called "Handstandles" and not candlesticks. Thank you kwqd!!!!
Thanks for stopping in for a look!!!
