This piece was likely made following the Second World War as that was a period of brief revival of silver overlay on glass, which had been popular between 1895 and 1920. By the mid 1950s it had fallen out of fashion.

This piece comes with the original box and guarantee papers.

#1162 Allied command Europe glass. A very rare and old glass. The AMF was Allied Mobile Force and was stationed in Germany. This is some real 1960s cold war history.
#1166 These candlesticks may or may not be Finnish although the glass is certainly very bright and clear and the design is Finnish. there is a small chip, not sharp on the bottom. I priced according to both uncertainty about where they are from and the chip. They are impressive to look at, nobody can see the chip underneath and they just might be from Finland. Size is 11 x 11 cm.
