# 4679. A fine pair of Secession hand modeled candle sticks. Size: 6", 15cm. Marks: round raised mark of the era and incised form numbers "5878". Circa 1900. The glaze: mostly copper eosin with strong marbled blue, green and gold eosin veins of color. The 'arms' are formed by the potter creating an undulating handle which when held is very pleasing to the touch. The fingers hold the candlestick conforming to the grasp of the hand. Condition: one of the sticks has an under edge flake as noted with over painting around the chip. Though we believed that many of this form were produced, we know of no other pair in private or public collection. Price: $1,800.00.

Note the under edge glaze chip to this candle stick.

Round raised Zsolnay factory mark of the era and the incised form number appears to read "5878"
