Bronze / brass candlestick Art Deco? Pyramid mark

Post by orangefrog on October 26th 2010, 6:14 pm

Hi there.
I bought this candlestick at a car boot sale in Germany about 15 years ago. My boyfriend at the time thought I was nuts to pay 15DM (about 5 at that time) for it but I liked it then and like it still.







It stands about 21cm tall, weighs a massive 1300g and has a rosy golden glow to it - in my ignorance I don't know whether it's brass, bronze or something else. It's well made yet roughly made at the same time as if it wasn't meant to be perfect.
It has a mark on the base of what looks like a pyramid with the sun behind it, with rows of zigzag lines going up the pyramid. The mark is tiny, only about 0.5cm high and the photo was the best I could do. Even looking through a magnifying glass it's not much clearer.
I'd be grateful for any information at all about it, thanks.

I don't know anything about metal marks , but it looks great , I could imagine a pair would be stunning , very arts and crafts look about it , but if it is a pyramid and sun , well..............egypt would be a logical start Shock

Er, well that's narrowed it down then, thanks Laughter

...not to forget most of the rest of the globe which seems to be festooned with them as well. It could be a long search!
