A pair of tall turned hardwood candlesticks, probably some form of ebony, with a central pierced wood carving of an elephant to each.

The candlesticks have been lightly cleaned but might benefit from further, more expert, cleaning. There are a few very minor nibbles throughout (whether from the original carving or later wear is difficult to say). One of the candlesticks is slightly wobbly on its base but otherwise the candlesticks are structurally sound.

Each candlestick stands approximately 11.75in high, with an outer diameter at the rim of between 1.5in and 1.75in (being hand made, the measurements vary) and an inner diameter of around 1in on each. Exact age unknown but believed to have some age, possibly around the middle part of last century. Believed to be African in origin. Together the candlesticks weigh approximately 745g.
