This is a wonderful pair of antique brass candlesticks. These English candle holders are push up and are the the beehive style. Measuring approximately 8" tall, the push-up rods may not be working as I could get them to move. However, I don't know how they work. The candlesticks are stamped England with a number. Great antique patina with minor discoloring at one of the bases. I think they would shine up beautifully if you prefer.
