Hammered Elegance

Arts & Crafts Hand-Hammered and Silver-Plated Tulip-Form Candlesticks by Meriden (LEO Design)


Like the candlesticks we shared earlier this week, this elegant pair of American Arts & Crafts candlesticks have a botanical inspiration.  The "cups" resemble tulip buds, just ready to open.  The shafts reflect tapered, tightly-bundled tulip stems.  And the "bobeches" are cut into a scalloped, petal-form shape.  The entire candlestick is hand-hammered and silver-plated.  They were made in Meriden, Connecticut around 1910.  Click on the photo above to learn more about these handsome candlesticks.
