Liberty Frog Candlesticks
Pair of amusing and rather rare stylised frog candlesticks made for Liberty in the early 1900’s.
They are each positioned on a lily pad, one seated, the other standing and both holding aloft a shaped candle holder.
With faces that are really full of character and showing fine skin detail their backs.
Made in patinated spelter, these would have been originally partially gilded and traces of this can still be seen on the candle sconces and lily pads.
There is a small hole that has been drilled at some stage in the past to one side and slightly behind the animals feet which we have left as is rather than have filled.
Acquired from a lady who had owned them for over 50 years and totally original.
Approximately 29 cm high.
