Property from the Personal Collection of Samuel Yellin
14 3/8 in. (36.5 cm) high
Overall in excellent condition. The iron surfaces throughout display beautifully variegated tones of black and silvery grey with some warmer tones throughout as well. The iron surfaces are incredibly rich and tactile with irregularities inherent to production which underscore the handmade quality of the work. The iron with some occasional extremely minor surface scratches and abrasions consistent with age and gentle handling. The candlestick with some occasional very minor traces of candle wax residue, consistent with use. A charming work with refined and elegant lines.
