Item Description

Original Items: Only One Pair Available. These are very beautiful chrome plated copper candlesticks from a US Sailor's time at a torpedo station from 1938-1940. The candlesticks are copies of the US Navy’s standard submarine-launched anti-ship torpedo of WW2, the Mark 14. The Mk 14 torpedo was manufactured from 4 different locations during the war, Naval Torpedo Station Newport, RI, Naval Torpedo Station Alexandria, VA, Naval Torpedo Station Keyport, Washington and Naval Ordnance Plant Forest Park, IL.

The candlesticks have a height of 13” with a base width of 4 ¾” and a top opening width (for the candles) of 1”.

The craftsmanship on these pieces are absolutely beautiful with incredible attention to detail. The propellers even spin! The base of the candlestick has writing with dates engraved on them. The engravings read:


There are no names that we have been able to find engraved anywhere, whether it be a location or the sailor’s name. However, these are very unique pieces and with some research, you should be able to narrow down which base these came from!

These very attractive pieces are ready to be polished and used on a stormy night when the power goes out! They both come more than ready to be displayed.

Mark 14 Torpedoes
The Mark 14 torpedo was the United States Navy's standard submarine-launched anti-ship torpedo of World War II. This weapon was plagued with many problems which crippled its performance early in the war. It was supplemented by the Mark 18 electric torpedo in the last two years of the war. From December 1941 to November 1943 the Mark 14 and the destroyer-launched Mark 15 torpedo had numerous technical problems that took almost two years to fix. After the fix the Mark 14 played a major role in the devastating blow U.S. Navy submarines dealt to the Japanese naval and merchant marine forces during the Pacific War.

By the end of World War II, the Mark 14 torpedo was a reliable weapon ultimately remaining in service for almost 40 years in the U.S. Navy, and even longer with other navies.
