This is a wire worked candlestick designed to hold a single candle. We have never seen a piece quite like it! It measures 3.75 inches in diameter across the base and stands about 1.5 inches tall. It is made with wire that has been wrapped around interwoven bands of metal. We are unsure about the composition of the metal. It is definitely not silver. It might be an alloy of nickel and chromium. The piece is well made and a delight in terms of creativity. It is totally functional but would certainly be fine to set on a table somewhere by itself strictly as a display piece or conversation starter. The condition is good. There is very little bending of the wire work and the metal has developed a great patina. It would be a shame to attempt to polish the surface.
