Magnificent obsession ~ mercury glass. Shines like sterling, doesn't need a single polishing.
Our 12" tall mercury glass candlestick looks like poured silver in the firelight. Designed in outstanding proportion, after the formal lines of ancient Greek pieces. The base diameter is 6 1/2". In very fine condition. A substantial piece of mercury glass, it weighs over 2# unpacked. Great presence ~ this stick really knows how to hold a candle.
