did you get the pic',s

Hello,

Yes, thank you for the images.

Have you checked the underside or the body of this, likely around the base, for any maker initials or manufacturers names?

By chance, do you know which Church this may have come from originally?

that's what has me puzzled no markings

Hi,

Thank you for the additional information.

This is a late 19th century, about 1880's, Baroque Revival style tall cast iron standing Paschal candle holder from a Catholic Church. Given the size and scale of the holder, likely from a Cathedral.

Most of these cast iron or metal wares for churches were produced in Pennsylvania, primarily in and around Pittsburgh and then shipped throughout the United States and Canada.

A Paschal candle is a tall white candle that last for one year; a new Paschal candle is blessed and lit each year on Easter.

A fair market value for this is $4000 - $6000 at auction on today's market.

i'm interest in auction which would you recommend

Hi,

If you are located on Long Island, the best auction house in your area is Philip Weiss. Here is a link for you to their site: http://www.weissauctions.com/

I also recommend contacting Ye Olde Good Things shop in NYC, as this would also be in their wheelhouse of interest:

https://ogtstore.com/

And definitely try contacting the Elizabeth Street Gallery in NYC too, this could be of interest to them:

http://elizabethstreetgallery.com/
