Pair of 18th century twisted column candlesticks 45"

SKU: 16415

Each made from one piece of sculpted wood, this pair of twisted columns is a stunning example of Spanish eighteenth-century polychrome woodwork. These columns feature a unique and lovely design adorned with branches of vine leaves and bunches of grapes, inspired by the columns that guard the tomb of Saint Peter in Rome which were constructed by Bernini as an homage to the pillars of Solomon's temple in Jerusalem. The polychrome woodwork adds a colorful element to the columns, and their grand triangular base adds a practical and functional aspect of stability to their design, as they would have provided illumination during outdoor gatherings or picnics. 

While they are perfect for candles, these columns have been adapted to hold light bulbs, and with the expert assistance of your local electrician, these could be used as beautiful and unique light fixtures in any space. These exquisite works of art are a blend of history and beauty, bringing a touch of elegance and intrigue to your home.
