Remarkably unscathed by time, these are c. In their original state, they would have had flutes of glass (epergne) for bouquets and probably flanked a beautifully carved old mantel clock. But it's remarkable enough that they've stayed together as a pair all this time, and you know these are fabulous as candlesticks. Very Country French, or cabin or lodge decor, or just to brighten up an English manor decor.
The Swiss carvers of the Black Forest were incredibly talented. Very good to excellent condition, you can see that there are very few imperfections - a very tip of a beak, but all the wings are superb and perhaps a leaf tip, but not much to detract from value or appeal.They are 8.5 tall, the opening will work for a normal tall taper candle. The base is sturdy in support, at 5.25" x 3" oval. You could certainly make these into end table lamps, as well.
