Vintage Brazier or Censer likely a reproduction of an earlier design. At first glance, the overall design appears to be Qajar Persian with the typical themes of birds and deer. However, it is marked with the name of the manufacturer and "made in Greece". The design is subtly carved with pierced areas which will let light through if a candle is burned within. The inside seems to be painted gold, perhaps to enhance reflectivity. This has water marks inside from previous use as a planter. The body of the piece is made of hand worked copper, and the handles are cast brass. This has three handles which is unusual for this sort of piece, possibly symbolic of the Holy Trinity. Measuring 7" high, by 10" across, this highly unusual piece weighs about 3 pounds.

Charming pair of 900 Egyptian Silver candlesticks in a simple, understated tapered baluster supporting an urn shaped candle cup, set on a spreading, circular base. These are unweighted, and I would recommend adding weights if using tall tapers. Hallmarks are as shown on the stem and base of each candlestick. I believe that these are from around 1960. They measure a little over 8 inches tall by 3.5 inches across, and weighing 9.2 ounces.

There is a second identical pair available with one tiny dent on the stem of one candlestick available at a $25.00 discount. A jeweler might be able to minimize the dent. You may order one or both pairs using the order button.
