I just found this candle holder yesterday and I am still searching for more information. The candle holder is overall in good condition. It needs to be cleaned but because I have over-cleaned items in the past I want to search first for some credible ways to do it right.
Based on the wear on the the candle holder (mostly the loss of what I believe to have been silver plating) I am sure it has some age. It might be even dating back to the beginning of the 1900's, however, I also learned that some of the designs were reproduced later. It would have helped a lot if there would have been a mark but there is nothing.
I came across one almost identical candle holder (same shape and size, 44 cm) and this one was marked "Kayserzinn", a German company. The difference was that the top part (to catch the dripping wax) was missing, while mine has it.
In any case, it is a nice useful and decorative item.
Thanks for looking:)
