Pretty pair of Victorian candlesticks, made by the Adams pottery, Tunstall, Staffordshire. Their mark dates them to late 19th century, post 1896. Lovely dark navy blue with classical scenes and borders of flowers and leaves. One has a chip on the sconce (see photos - the marks around the rims are just old wax, swhich comes off with warm to hot water), but this is an easy restoration if required. The other has an uneven patch under the rim of the sconce, which could possibly be an old restoration. They each measure 15 cm high with a base of 11 cm diameter (6 inches by 4.1/4 inches). Very attractive pair.
