French Standing Oak Candelabrum
This remarkable hand-turned, carved, and pegged oak candelabrum has been stripped of its old paint to reveal a wonderful patina reminiscent of limed oak. The 13 hand-whittled candle prickets are fully functional. This piece makes a bold architectural statement and mixes wonderfully with spare contemporary steel and glass furnishings, as well as with more traditional looks. A very old repair to the trifid base that came apart during shipping has now been re-pegged and securely glued for a barely visible repair.
France, CA 1790.
