19 1/2" tall 1700 alter sticks
i am very pleased to offer this exceptional pair of 19 1/2" tall pricket candlesticks circa 1700. they are marked with a touchmark containing 'pr' and a bell. a second mark contains a NUREMBERG shield and the letter 'l'. very similar examples are shown in hornsby's "pewter of the western world" on page 321 (figures 1084 and 1085). note the early ball knop and ball feet as well as acorn and baluster turnings. the pair is in excellent condition and have led sacred lives.
