I have absolutely no way to take a photograph and send it. Please refund my $5 fee. I am not satisfied with this reply. I think it was just to sell extensive trials which I do not want. I am 80 years old and did not expect this from you. I will notify Visa that I will not accept your fee because that is certainly not an answer. I will sell them for the silver.

I suggest that you have them looked at rather than melted. To give values it helps to see what the item looks like. The current silver price is only $13.00 an ounce since yours are most likely weighted you would have about $30.00 in silver. Where as the current value at auction for a pair of Tiffany 8 inch candles sticks is $500.00 to $650.00.
