Here are a wonderful pair of vintage Petite Choses monkey candle holders standing on green marble bases circa 1980's. I found these at an estate sale in Newport, Rhode Island and had to take these home.

They stand 7 1/4" high and the base of the marble measures 3 1/4". The sitting monkey is approximately 3" high and the standing monkey is 2 1/2" high. They weight a total of 2lbs. What I like about this set is that they can be used as a pair,or as a separate candle stick. The under side of the marble base is covered in felt, as not to scratch the surface they are sitting on. Both can stand so to speak, on their own.

Petit Choses is a Company known for taking molds of vintage pieces and remaking them with iron or some type of metal. The monkeys are china and the leaves they are on and the palm trees are made out of metal.

Monkey World located in Dorset, England sits on 65 acres of sanctuary for over 240 primates. Money World was set up in 1987 by Jim Cronin to provide abused Spanish beach chimps with a permanent and stable home.

Today Monkey World works in conjunction with foreign governments from all over the world to stop illegal smuggling of apes out of Africa and Asia.

These would be unique sitting on your table, desk or in a bookcase.

Happy Decorating.
