These magnificent and monumental candlesticks are of a type frequently seen flanking the mihrab of a significant Ottoman monument. Similar pairs of tombak candlesticks, also of the sixteenth century are found before the mihrabs of the mosques of Rustem Pasa and Sokollu Mehmed Pasa. A pair closely related in shape are in the turbe of Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent and another were exhibited in London and now in the Nasser D. Khalili Collection (Allan and Raby 1982, p.46, no.33). The plain style seems to be in keeping with the purpose and setting of the pieces.
