Its my opinion these were very gently used and very well cared for, because there is no wax build up in the bottom or the sides of any of the candlepower's. Normally with pieces of this age you find dimbles or a ding or especially around the edges of the bases but NOT THESE! The only thing that I have found wrong and honestly its really nothing is that, when you shake one of the branches on one candelabra it has a ringing. I believe that a piece of the resin on the inside base of one of the candle holders, broke off at some point and is loose inside. Now the only time you would hear this is when you moved the piece and shook it.
Each piece does break down so you could use these as single candlesticks if desired. Each candelabra is properly marked on the reverse as you can see. Each one measures 15 3/4 inches in height and the length on top is 13 3/4 inches. The single candlestick without the 3 branch would stand 11 1/8 inches in height and the diameter of the base is 5 1/4 inches. This is a phenomenal pair and a pair that you do not see very often in this kind of condition!The item must be in NEW condition with all original packaging, tags, and instructions.
