This large and impressive pair of parcel gilt altar sticks was hand carved of teak, with fluting around the tops, concentric rings around the stems and a scroll and floral design on the bases. They sit atop rectangular plinths. As was often the case, these were carved and decorated only on the fronts; that side facing the congregation. These retain the original, hand forged iron prickets and most of the gilt.
