Pair of Turned Wooden Inlaid Candlesticks
This handsome pair of turned wooden candlesticks have a band of checkerboard pattern inlay to the bottom in a wood that has been dyed green and another paler colour wood. The main body and base of the candlesticks is probably oak.
The sticks have a maroon coloured velvet applied to the underside so that they don’t leave scratch marks on a surface.
The candlesticks take a standard diameter candle; they are shown in the photographs here with a St Eval ivory candle.
It is difficult to date the candlesticks but I imagine that they were made in the third quarter of the twentieth-century. They appear to have been made in two separate parts, the base and the vertical sections and then fitted together, although the join is not noticeable.
