Pair of Stavre Gregor Panis of Sterling Silver Seahorse Candlesticks, mid-20th c.
A beautiful and rare form, these arts & crafts candlesticks are wonderfully hammered, pierced, and chased with five panels of back-to-back seahorses. The bases are slightly domed with rising candle holders in the form of blossoming flowers. Panis is known for his floral pierced silver jewelry, and these are wonderful examples of his famous style and technique in holloware.
Provenance: Purchased c. 1985 from Gladys Panis. Private collection.
These lovely candlesticks are stamped underneath 'SGP' within a triangle and 'STERLING' . They measure just over 4 inches in diameter by 3.5 inches high, weigh a combined 7.05 troy ounces, have never been monogrammed, and are in excellent antique condition.
