Tall Mid-century Gothic Brass Candle Holder
Stands 18″ tall. Big brass candle holder for gothic dining tables, mantels, spooky corners, etc. This exact candlestick holder form and size was spotted on The Secret of The Purple Reef, a 1960 – 20th Century Fox film starring Peter Falk, among other popular 1960’s actors. This gives us good reason to date it to around the 1960’s.
In the 195’0s through the 1970’s most of our imports came from Japan. This huge candleholder is marked ‘Japan’ on its base. Made of heavy turned brass.
Beautiful light and even golden patina. Has some light atmosphere spotting that is very hard to see. Has no corrosion. Comes apart for easy cleaning (never use metal polish, just a soft cloth with a little oil and some elbow grease). Dark areas in the images are reflections. This big candlestick has uniform color. Weighs 2.75 lbs, 18″ tall, and a 5″ round base. Accomodates candlesticks or larger votives or towers.
