Metalware - Brass/Bronze



German, 17th c.

Heavy, smallish, very well used, lots of wear -- a mortar with character. Cast with flanges flanking a figural head -- under a crown?? Good old color.

Pair of Two-Light Wall Sconces 

Dutch, 18th c

Beautiful dark, uncleaned surface; beautiful dark, uncleaned semi-nude putti. Other rococo motifs, all repousee. Heart-shaped shield for owner's initials (yours??) S-shaped arms twisted in the middle.Slightly domed reflector panel, ejector holes under nozzles. Not too many like it, especially with this impressive size.

Pair of Tall Candlesticks 

Dutch or Spanish, c.1650

Triangular bases with lions' feet (think pyramids, sphinx!) Well turned stems with balusters, rings and bulbs. Baluster nozzles -- nice to find tall 'sticks with nozzles, not prickets.

Hanging Hook 

English, 1680-1720

Here's a challenge for you: what was it used for? The wear on the hanging hole shows lots of use, the style is around the turn of the century, and the figure on the hook (Dolphin? Rooster? Puff the Magic Dragon?) is lively and attractive. You'll find somewhere to hang it.

Pair of Taper Sticks 

English, c.1720

Nice example of the Queen Ann style with baluster turnings and petal bases. All the edges nicely softened by wear and polishing. Nothing extraordinary, but good thins to own. You'll like 'em.
