Vintage Mid Century Candleholders, Peter Pots Pottery
A cool pair of candleholders by Peter Pots pottery. The pottery candleholders are in their Mahogany Brown color; a deep pale gray blue shading to dark brown. The candlesticks measure approximately 5" tall x 4" wide at base. Fits regular taper candles, they are hollow so can also be used as vases. Because each piece is handmade, there is a slight variation between pieces. In very good vintage condition; one candle holder is marked the other is not.
