Pair of Candelabra

English, 1675-1700

Wrought iron. Iron made the poor man's candleholders, so almost all are single. An iron candelabra burning three candles at once is almost a contradiction in terms -- and here's a pair, buring six! All wrought by a local blacksmith, with lovely signs of hand-forging. Rolled conical sconces (a sign of early date) on a trident-form stand on quadriform base. Each with triple conical sconce over a plain stem supported on quadripod base Good original condition, no restoration.

16-1/2" h x 6-1/2" w across sconces.
