A pair of wooden candles sticks with chrysanthemum shaped feet covered in black lacquer and gilded with gold dating from the first part of the 20th century. They are roughly 50 cm (19 inches) tall and in excellent condition. On the base is a seal from the Kimoto Butsugu Store in Toyama city with a 4 digit telephone number. Judging by this they likely date from the 1920s or 30s (in 1936, at the outbreak of war, there were just less than half a million telephones in Japan.
