These are really neat, and was told they were for church weddings and used on the ends of church pews on the isles. Seems they may have come from the. Era, where extravagant, elaborate set the tone and was normal. They measure 50" tall by 14.5" wide as they are. The candle area at top has a nut you can loosen to extend the candlestick another 24 if need be.
Looks like they were only extended 10 prior, being the white paint only goes that far, then is unpainted. They are a very heavy, solid piece of decoration, weighing est 17.5 lb.
I have not been able to see how exactly they work with a church pew, nor really know if that story is true, but have had brackets welded to them to help hold something. There is a bracket toward the top with double bars, and one lower with only one bar. Rubber foam is now covering them to ensure a softer connection.
Will not stand on their own without leaning or supporting against. Has a very heavy white coat of paint, with multiple chips throughout.
I have looked for photos with something like this in it, but have not come up with anything to have some sort of history. If your wanting to stand out, then these just might be able to help you do it. Picking up there is not charge, so easiest for both you and me. I take pride in my pictures, and are a valuable extension of my description. Please take time to see the product fully.Check out my other listings by clicking here!
