The first thing I would like to point out about this elegant set of candle holders is the fact that one of them appears to have been somehow pressed down bending the metal. I bring it up this way because I didn't notice it at first and it's so uniform it almost looks like it was meant to be that way. Perhaps it's a factory defect. The two are in, otherwise, great condition with only minor scratches to the surface. One stands at 3 3/4" the other at 3 1/2". All is considered in the price.
