Anderson Foundry Candlesticks

Q: I have a pair of brass candlesticks with the mark “A” in the center of a triangle. Can you tell me who made them and how old they are? Are they valuable?

A: This mark was used by the Anderson Brass Foundry, which did work for several Arts & Crafts designers, including Carence Crafters, Robert Jarvie, and Jessie Preston. The foundry was in business in the Chicago area from 1906 to 1917. Your candlesticks are in a very traditional Arts & Crafts style, so the value is only $100-$200.
