Hello my name is***** am a certified appraiser and would be happy to help you. Can you please post a photo of the candle holders overall. Thank you for the bottom of the holder as I can see the markings now I would like to see the design and how tall are these ? All of this helps in the evaluation. I look forward to helping you.
Thank you yes it does help and the measurement is roughly 6" tall? I am guessing by the way it fits your hand.
Thank you I am looking this set up now. Yes the gold trim is done with gold leaf or liquid gold and hand painted. Nice pair of candle holders.
I have been several books and online sites I can find out what G.T.C is other then the artist and no full name can be found I have found several pieces with the exact markings and have learned the following. These were done in the early 1950s.The candle set you have is valued at 150.-175.00 for the pair done in 1958 and looks to be in excellent condition. A small bowl done by the artist sold for 45.00 on ebay.com and right now has a few pieces marked the same however with other initials. Thank you and if I can help you further please let me know I am always happy to help.
