Japanese 30"H Meiji Bronze Temple Shokudai Candle Stands Candlesticks
item#: 1412935
price: $550.00
Pair of 30" high Japanese Meiji period bronze temple candle stands ("shokudai"), each with a hexagonal shaft supported by a 12" diameter circular base with a chrysanthemum accent at the center. Late 19th century. Very good overall condition with a nice patina. The shafts are slightly wobbly and one of the candle stands is missing the hook designed to hold the tweezers used for pinching the candle wick. Acquired from the Arizona estate of a World War II veteran who purchased the pair in Japan in 1954.
