The four graduated candlesticks in this set are crafted from cast and turned brass. The candlesticks, which date to the 16th century, demonstrate a spare and refined style: during certain phases of the Ottoman period—particularly during the time when the present pieces were produced—a taste for plainer, more understated work prevailed, as opposed to the richly adorned and decorated work more commonly associated with Islamic art. With these candlesticks, the form itself was designed to make an impression, and not simply elaborate surface decoration.
Each candlestick is bell shaped, with a truncated conical base over a splayed foot. Each base rises to a flared bobèche (a trip dray to collect melted wax), above of which is a narrow ringed neck terminating in a pronounced collar and a candleholder socket.
The largest of the candlesticks is engraved, most probably with the name or monogram of ones of its former owners.
Largest: Height 41.5cm, diameter 24cm
Smallest: Height 28cm, diameter 16cm
