1970s Brutalist Spain Wooden Candlestick Holders

Here's a nice pair of heavy, dark and brutalistic 11" pillars for candles that were made in Spain in the 1970s. These still bear the original Made in Spain paper labels on the bottom. They are cleverly made as the "wick" you see is actually a spike to hold a candle and what appears to be leftover wax is actually plastic to give the appearance that a candle has burned down. One can choose to leave them as they are or put new candles on them. Some chipping on the edge of one candle and one of the "wicks" is burnt. Very nice masculine accents for a fireplace mantle.
