Seller: artandsandy (1,596) 100%, Location: Glendale, California, Ships to: US, Item: 223076096867 THIS PAIR OF RUSSIAN ALTAR CANDLES ARE BY SISOVE FACTORY, MOSCOW 1833 DURING THE REIGN OF TZAR NICOLAS THE FIRST. THE GLASS IS ETCHED WITH RED VINES AND A LION SITTING DOWN ON A SCROLL HOLDING A SWORD WITH THE SUN BEHIND HIM AND A CROWN ABOVE THE SUN ALL ETCHED IN GOLD. THE GLASS SHADES MEASURE 11" TALL. 5" ACROSS THEY ARE IN GOOD CONDITION, ONE HAS A VERY SMALL 3/4" HAIRLINE AT THE TOP IT IS VERY SMOOTH AND COULD OF JUST BEEN A BUBBLE AT PRODUCTION. GLASS SHADES HAVE BRASS INSERTS TO FIT INTO BRASS HOLDERS I THINK THEY REPRESENT ORTHODOX SYMBOLS OF THE LION PROTECTING THE SUN AND CROWN REPRESENTING OUR LORD THE BRASS HOLDERS MEASURE 13" HIGH and 5" ACROSS THE BOTTOM. THEY ARE STAMPED WITH THE SISOVEV MARK AND EACH HAS A CATHEDRAL OR CASTLE. THIS ROUND PART UNSCREWS TO PUT THE CANDLES IN WITH A SPRING MECHANISM THAT WORKS! THE BRASS HOLDERS HAVE A FEW SMALL DENTS IN THEM I THINK THEY CAN BE REPAIRED. I DID NOT POLISH THEM THEY ARE VERY RARE AND VERY BEAUTIFUL I REPLACED THE CRYSTALS WITH NEW ONES AS THEY WERE MISSING The lion is the Iranian Persian Royal Symbol Russians exported to Iran They are very unusual WE HAVE NEVER SEEN CANDLE HOLDERS LIKE THESE EVEN IN RUSSIA BUT WE USED SIMILAR ONES IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH SALE was $1,299 SHIPPING TO U.S. FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING NOMINAL FEE
