ANTIQUE 1940's-50's ERA ITALIAN BRASS DOLPHIN DOUBLE/SERPENT CANDLE HOLDER
ANTIQUE 1940S ITALIAN BRASS DOLPHIN/SERPENT. Please see photos for description and condition. This was part of a family estate, I was always told they were dolphins and this was an item that came as a souvenir from Italy after the war. To me they are more like KOI fish or dragons but a quick google search also identifies it as Dolphins. The shorter is 5 3/4" tall the taller one is 7 1/2" tall. Base is 7 3/4" by 3 1/2". I do not see any markings. This breaks down into 7 pieces, the base, 2 dolphins (lets agree to call them that), two wax trays (tip of tail) and two candle holders.
