Unusual old pair of candelabras -- three candle cups each, decorated with brass figural wheat, grapes, lilies and grape leaves. Based on my research, these are French altar candelabra, the wheat and grapes represent communion bread and wine and the lily represents Christ.
They were made in many sizes and configurations in the late 19th century. This smaller size, 11-12 inches tall, would have been for a home altar. Lovely gilt metal base with designs that look like church architectural motifs. Thank you for viewing my item.
