This great candelabra holds one single candle at the top of its ornate base of leaves, birds, flowers and balls, most of which are wired onto its frame and give a very three-dimensional effect.

It stands about 8 inches high (without candle) by 8 inches wide, and is a sturdy 2-1/4 inches thick. It was originally purchased in Mexico in the early 1960s, and is in nice condition. There are 11 leaves, 6 small round decorative balls, 6 small rosette flowers, 1 large 8-petaled flower in the center, and 2 small and cute hand-shaped birds. One leaf is missing, but it's opposite one could be removed if symmetry is desired, and there is a small chip at the top. All of these intriguing pieces are attached to a free-form candelabra with a sturdy 2-1/2-inch-round pedestal base. As with any truly hand-formed piece like this, there are interesting color changes, inclusions, and even impressions of the artist's fingerprints here and there. Unique!

The "Tree of Life" has come to symbolize the Mexican culture, and hey are both beautiful and useful. This is a wonderful and interesting candelabra -- perfect for your rustic, Western, or Spanish Hacienda decor!
