This is an imposing 19th century fine quality, massive and heavy pair of antique Gothic Revival ecclesiastical altar candlesticks. They are casted, in solid brass with elaborately embossed and chiseled top and base, very much in the manner of Pugin. The ecclesiastical ornaments in the Neo Gothic metalwork show excellent medieval craftsmanship. The decorative design points to the strong possibility of the creation of Augustus Welby Pugin, the great Gothic Revival architect. His collaboration with the John Hardman foundry of Birmingham resulted in this extraordinary casting.


The condition is good, although one of the bases has two dents. Both candlesticks have a memory inscription on the base. From the collection of Henry Alexander count of Salm-Hoogstraeten, Tuxedo Park, New York

Measurements: Height 17” x diameter 6 ½”

Weight: 19 lb the pair.
