You are bidding on a wonderful pair of vintage, brass dragon candlesticks. They likely date from the 1920's, and depict winged, two-footed dragons, bearing floral-based candle holders. The pieces measure 9 1/4" long, and are 6 1/4" high at the wingtips. The candle holder cups, which measure about 2" in diameter across the circular floral bases, screw off for cleaning purposes, and accomodate standard tapers.

These two candlesticks have been in my family for some time - I'm a bit sad to see them go, but it's time to clear house a bit. We've never botd to polish them, and I feel that their light patina suits their character nicely. These aren't exactly the sweet, somewhat predictable creatures that are featured in modern decor - they remind me of turn-of-the-century architectural animals, what with their combination of reptilian and avian characteristics. They are really quite charming to see, and I think it's wonderful that t are two of them.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to ask, and I will do my best to answer them for you. Please understand if t is a high shipping charge - with strong packaging, these two will weigh in at about 4 lbs, and I do ship via Priority, with Delivery Confirmation - insurance is up to you. Shipment is initiated on the day following payment - if paid for by check, they will ship once the check clears. I ADORE PayPal. :)

Thanks so much for shopping, and Happy Bidding!
