C1930 Pair of Bakelite Candlesticks


19.5 cm tall. In a traditional 18th century design rather than an Art Deco' style, these 1930s candlesticks nevertheless use the smart Moderne material of bakelite. The bakelite is striated and red, possibly in imitation of turned wood. They are in very good condition, with no charring to the drip pan, rather surprisingly. Bakelite is a thermosetting plastic, so it chars rather than melts in contact with a flame. This is a good choice for candlesticks!
