    Completely unmarked, assuming silverplate. Can anyone put these with a maker? They look Deco to me.

    Got them home last week from a (dimly lit) estate and although not expensive, initially had some buyers remorse because it looked like the finish was shot. But I got some simichrome and that discoloration polished easily to a mirror shine! See last pic for the small section that cleaned up. I'm not a polisher due to hand issues, so for a bit there won't be any before/after pictures. Although when DD visits, she loves polishing.

    Wondering if these can be attached to a maker/style, etc. Thanks.

    lovely. I've seen these before but can't nail it at the moment. first thought was Chase but they're not in the catalogue. second thought is Quist 1950s.

    They are great. I was inspired to head off on a wild google chase and came across this fellow, Tommi Parzinger, who seems to like putting circular bits in different places on candlesticks. I assume yours are candlesticks but hmmm,
    where do the drips go? Sample pic below.

    Thanks, Fid. I was thinking "maybe Chase??" at the sale, but like you didn't find anything quite like this.

    I'll check out Quist and Tommi Parzinger (thanks, Alittlebit!)
