Copperton Lane Antiques & Collectibles

Circa: 1988
Country of Origin: DE
Manufacturer: SKS Zinn
A pair of Mid Century pewter taper candlesticks, made by SKS of Germany. They're 7 inches tall with embossed grape clusters and vines ringing the bases. Each has the engraved date 1836 below the grapes in the front. I have no idea what the significance of the date is, but the company made a series of products with the same date and grape decoration, so it must be some type of commemorative reproduction. They have a hand wrought, somewhat Colonial appearance.

The candlesticks are surprisingly heavy for their size. The rims of the cups are quite soft and have a few minor dings, nothing really noticeable and easily pushed back in place if desired. The last photo shows the SKS Zinn (pewter) mark, looking straight down inside the candle cup.
