RAF Trench Art Candlesticks

A very fine matched pair made from polished aircraft aluminium interspersed with what we believe to be paxolin which was used as an electrical insulator in WWII, as well as for the manufacture of instruments panels. Almost certainly made by aircraft fitters in their off duty moments and probably date from the second World War. We see many examples of trench art but these are as nice as we have had and would make the perfect addition to an RAF or trench art collection, as well as being completely functional candlesticks. Measure 7.5" (19cm)
