Offered for sale is a massive late 18th century Baroque style altar candlestick with highly carved wooden panels and edges. The unique three-side obelisk shape tapers upward and ends in a platform triangular top with a candle cup doweled into the center. The candlestick has a red polychrome background contrasted against the silver-leaf carvings.
The candlestick is in excellent age appropriate condition with wear to the finish and an even worn patina to the painted surfaces. Carved in a primitive style, it is wonderful as a conversation piece, to place a candle in, or to use as a platform by removing the cup.
Size: 34 ½" Height by 26" Width.
