Black Wrought Iron Ten-Sconce Sphere Candelabra

DOE AND HOPE
The large black wrought iron floor standing candelabra, of naturalistic sinuous form, being a caged sphere with ten candle sconces, raised on a sinuous shaped support to four flattened legs and pad feet and surviving from the last quarter of the twentieth century.

In good condition there are no damages to speak of, the metalwork simply with some wear and wax residue to it. We have used tea lights in the illustrations but the sconces would take larger candles if so desired.

The word candelabra is a derivation of the Latin word "candelabrum" which means candlestick. A Menorah, a specific seven-branched candelabrum is one of the oldest symbols of Jewish faith. Although it is understood candelabra were used during the Middles Ages (400 –1400 AD), artefacts and records from the 1600’s provide examples of candlesticks and candelabra. In the 1800’s, silver candelabra became de rigueur at the evening dinner table, providing both illumination and decoration for the substantial, end of day meal. The demise of the candelabra, along with candlesticks, came with the invention of the light bulb in the 1870’s.

Gloriously ethereal.

'Doe & Hope specialise in decorative, rare and unusual antiques from around the world with a particular interest in the atmosphere that surrounds an object, taking a cinematic approach in the presentation of our inventory. Our house style is probably best described as theatrical; being a concoction of old money, dramatic decorative, and faded gentility, with common themes of both humour and the macabre running through our inventory, that includes both academic and playful objects.

We are members of LAPADA and were included in Homes & Antiques '50 Best Antique Shops' in the UK for 2016. We have had a concession in the prestigious Liberty of London department store in 2015 and have also won the Antiques Young Gun of the Year award for 2014.
