circa 1600 pricket sticks

i am very pleased to offer this circa 1600 pair of north german pricket candlesticks.  they are 10 3/4" tall to the top of the spike and 7 1/4" to the upper drip pan.  the bottom diameter is 5".  the components of these are similar to a tall candlestick pictured in the hornsby's "pewter of the western world" on page 319, illustration #1079 (center).  the pair has a nice dark patina and are in very good condition.  these are church sticks.
