This is an original vintage (early) pair of small, Hobart cast iron candlesticks designed by Robert Welch c 1961. The candlesticks stand just under 6″ tall and 4″ wide approx, and are in very good condition with a patina to the case iron with a little wax residue. Slight rusting – as detailed in the photos, but a wire brush should sort this out. All of the original protective felt pads are present and both still have the original Robert Welch labels, together with the Design Centre London labels. Both are marked “R WELCH ENGLAND” within the top recess. Please see matching fruit bowl in my other items.
