I recently found a candelabra with 4 stamps. I know it is pewter but wondering age and if it is worth anything. Any thoughts?

Welcome to Tnet.

I don’t recognise the maker, nor know how much it might be worth, but it’s not an old piece. The first touch mark says “ETAIN 95%” and “étain” is the French word for “tin/pewter” (the accent isn’t usually placed on an upper case ‘E’). The 95% designation means it contains that proportion of tin in the alloy and is only seen on pieces from the later part of the 20th Century onwards… generally not before the 1970s.

As such, it's value is likely to be derived from it usefulness and decorative appeal rather than as a collector's item.
 

For what it's worth.
Seems that the 3 arm Pewter Candelabras asking prices range from low $20-$100.
The style and finish for the piece shown, I'd be pricing it on the lower end of the price points.
