Antique~hand Hammered Solid Copper Arts & Craft 5-light Candelabra~lovely Patina For Sale
This completely hand-hammered solid copper 5-light Arts & Crafts era candelabra is a stunner...and heavy too! There is no part of this beauty that isn't hammered, except the nut and bolt that were added during the 20th century to keep the main candle shaft attached and straight (it was originally copper soldered). Features 2 seperate copper bars that were hand squared, flattened in the center, drilled in the center of the flat part,with hand-hammered drip guards and candle cups added toeach end. The 2 copper bars were then copper riveted together in the center, with a main candlestick added by solder over the joint. Every bit of this exquisite piece was lovingly hand-crafted. A true work of art!
Unsure of maker; there is no hallmark or signature. From the late 1800s-early 1900s.
No damage anywhere that I can see, beyond the flaws that come with handwork. Has some verdigris and staining.
10 1/2" tall x 16" in diameter.
