Found a pair of what appear to be antique hammered brass candlesticks with ceramic insets. There is an identifying mark on the bottom that appears to date them to the late 19th century. They are assembled in pieces with a long bolt through the center and a square nut on the bottom. When disassembled, each piece has the same markings hidden where they meet. Was wanting to try to find out more if anyone has any information.
“I” in the circle
In the diamond “I” on top and to the left, R with a small D to the upper right hand of the letter in the middle, K to the immediate right of the R in the middle, and what appears to be a D in the very bottom of the diamond. The “initials” are the same on both candlesticks, that I can tell for sure. The first letter is clearly an E, the second letter appears to resemble the Greek letter for Gamma.
