Catholic Church Candle Holders Or Artistic Urns?

Post by Dannd on November 15th 2013, 6:21 pm

Hello!

I came across an interesting piece(s) that I would love the boards opinion on. When I initially found them I thought that they may be a studio piece possibly two brass urns as the quality was higher than a standard mass produced product from China but now Im getting the feeling they may be candle holders (or maybe just urns) for an altar at a church. What are your thoughts? They are massive about 16" H and the small plaque on each represents Jesus and Mary (during the crucifixion). There are no markings. Thanks for your opinions!

The images of Christ and Mary on the front are typical of Catholic imagrey, so I'd go with Catholic church candlesticks.
