This impressive top sits on a black marble urn shaped mid-section that is decorated with swags of brass held up by cherubs. The entire piece sits on a 6 inch square of highly decorated brass.The piece has aged beautifully and exhibits a lovely patina on the brass structures; however it does have some flaws that, while they do not take away from the overall beauty of the piece must be noted. This candelabra appears to have been much used; there are a few dinks and scratches in the wax catching cups of the candle holders and several of the candle holder arms are loose; a person knowedgeable in repair of vintage brass pieces may easily correct these shortcomings but we do not have that expertise.
Lastly, there is a chip in the marble at the base of the bottle neck top of the mid-section; depending on the angle of display this chip could be hidden. We have reduced the price of this piece to reflect these imperfections. Do check out our other listing of an identical candelabra.It was recieved at the same time and the two were likly one individual's pair. That piece shows none of the flaws mentioned above; it's price reflects its condition. You may prefer the other offering or you might want a pair! We have a separate listing for an identical candelabra that was received at the same time; they were very likely one individual's pair. However, it appears that the other piece was more often used and has more marks of wear and several structural issues and is therefore being offered at a lower price.
Please check it out and evaluate it; you might want a pair! The piece was obviously well used and as a result has multiple dinks in the wax holding cups; these are seen only upon close inspection.
However, the piece also has several loose arms that bear the candel holders; these could very likely be secured by one with some knowledge of vintage brass pieces but we do not possess those talents. Lastley, there is a chip in the marble at the base of the bottle neck part of the mid-section; depending on the way the piece is displayed this blemish could be hidden.
