A rare and beautiful antique set of three French candelabras. Usually found as a pair.  We have three. Newly polished and ready for any setting. All three French Provencal candelabras feature a harvest motif of wheat, grapes, grape leaves and lily blossoms.  The wheat and grapes represent communion bread and wine and the lily represents Christ.  The two larger candelabras have six arms and seven capitals. The smaller candelabra have two arms and three capitals with a Cross detail on the base. All three candelabra staffs extend upward toward the heavens from an urn body supported atop an extremely detailed base with three feet for the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.  

Brass and copper. Patina through out with some discoloration. One of the larger candelabras is a little wobbly. All stand on their own. In great antique condition. A gorgeous statement piece.
