These are Israeli Shabbat Judaica silver filigree candlesticks in the Yemenite style of filigree. They must have the number 925 in order to be sterling. Generally the A1 symbol indicates silver plated, A1 representing the quality of silver plate used. If these are sterling, they are worth $200 for the pair. If they are silver plated, they are worth $75.00.It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer.
