Prolonging the Light - Part II

Victorian English Aesthetic Movement Brass Candlesticks (LEO Design)

Made around 1880, this pair of Victorian English brass candlesticks seem to offer a tip-of-the-hat to Dr. Christopher Dresser, the important designer and tastemaker of the British Aesthetic Movement.  While not overly tall, they convey a nice visual weight—and would elegantly hoist a rather tall taper.  Click on the photo above to learn more about them and, perhaps, bring them home for use on your table, window ledge or mantelpiece.
