Heraldic Stork Candlesticks

hover over image to zoom

A pair of Regency period bronze storks standing on gilded rocky bases on engine-turned bronze plinths and holding aloft gilded foliate candle sockets.

The bronze storks are finely cast with sharp after-work to the feathers and the original gilding is of a good aged colour.

English circa 1830.

Storks have long been a symbol of gratitude and faithfulness since they return to their nests year after year; they will often appear in heraldry for this reason. They are emblems of immortality and longevity, vigilance, contemplation, prudence, piety, meditation, and chastity.
