More Light Forthcoming

Pair of German Modernist Wrought Iron Brutalist Altar Candlesticks (LEO Design)


Though the days now are getting longer and longer—ever sooo s-l-o-w-l-y—we crave more and more light.  And we'd like it now!  The shortest day of the year is a month behind us, but the longest day of the calendar is still five months away.  Let these wrought iron Brutalist candlesticks help you illuminate your home.  They were made in Germany after World War II and may have been avant-garde altarsticks from a Modernist church.  The square bobeches will accept either a round pillar candle or a square columnar candle. Heavy bases provide stability while the rugged aesthetic adds a touch of primitive charm to an Arts & Crafts of Modernist interior.  Click on the photo above to learn more about them.
