Pewter Candlesticks: Pair of German pewter candlesticks manufactured by Walter Scherf & Co., c. 1905. The "Osiris Metallwarenfabrik fur Kleinkunst Walter Scherf & Co." was founded in 1899. In 1902, the company developed a new kind of pewter, the so called "Isis" metal. Despite winning several design prizes in both Europe and the States, the firm closed in 1909.
