The scalloped edges of the base are particularly elegant and the shafts are peened to the base; they were not drilled for electricity. The holes in the peened stems are original to the candlesticks, attesting to the age estimate of around 1750 or possibly earlier.
The shafts are also nicely complicated and elegant. They are not seamed shafts, but this is in keeping with 17th century and earlier 18th century construction, and also 19th century construction, but these I believe lean toward the earlier 18th century with the peened and holed shafts. But please examine all photos carefully to make your own determinations. A very nice addition to your collection or to start one, or a great look for a candlelight dinner. Diameter 4 3/4 inches at widest points.
