Decorative pair of mirrored - meaning a right and a left facing - figural dolphin brass. Nice heavy casting with great detail mounted on oval bases.
They stand 9" tall and the oval base is 5" wide by 8 long. Skinny enough for a mantel piece and substantial enough for the dining room table. The form of the dolphins is reminiscent of the drawing on maps from the 16th & 17th century, they look more sea monster than fish. The candle cups are located on the end of the tails of the twisting dolphins.Great look for a den or study, but no great age to them. Made in India no later than the 1980's and as late as the 2000's. One alone weighs over 4 pound unpackaged. The item "Pair 9 Brass Figural Dolphin Candlesticks Candle Holders" is in sale since Friday, May 17, 2019.
