This pair of mid century modern candle sticks in the FAR EAST pattern was made by the Reed and Barton Company of Taunton, Massachusetts. They are made of sterling silver and black melamine. They stand approximately eight inches tall. The "dots" of silver on the sticks are small imperial chrysanthemum blossoms, thus the tie in to the far east. The sticks are date marked by Reed and Barton for the year 1957. They are in excellent vintage condition and they have not been buffed.
