Belarus Minsk Russian Solid Silver Shabbat Candlestick Marked Slkarka 1878
925 fine, so there is slightly less silver in this alloy. The great candlesticks have a great hand chased leaf motif with two aprons on a curving detailed stick a cutout apron surround on top and a square raised base supporting a round candle stick base. I call these Shabbat candlesticks as the taller versions such as this were frequently use for this purpose. They are in beautiful condition with only some minor dings, some slight leaning of one or both, no wobble on either, some slight bending of gallery surround top and some fine scratches from gentle use and care with no monogram. They are an excellent set for the silver collector of fine antiques as well as a beautiful addition of ambiance to almost any setting or décor.
I have an interesting assortment of items listed so please look at my other auctions. 13 3/4 inches High, 4 7/8 x inches x 4 7/8 inches across base. 28.5 ounces on my postal scale or 807 grams.
