My Favorite Things


One of my favorite finds of the last few months: a pair of English Arts & Crafts turned mahogany candlesticks.  The "cup" at the top has a tulip blossom or poppy pod floral-form.  And "knuckles" at the top and bottom of the reed-thin shaft give visual weight to the turning. Truly elegant!  And much more impressive in-person.  Click on the photo above to learn more about them.
