Candelabrum, Tenth Anniversary Tin Candle Tree, Folk Art
The Tinsmith's Expression of Rural Elegance
American
Circa 1850
Tin over sheet iron, thirteen candle sockets



With its cut-tinned sheet-iron crystals, this rare, large candelabrum draws comparison to a chandelier with related hanging crystals having a Vermont history of ownership. Each of the candle sockets with folded rims set within deep fluted and flaring drip-pans on scrolled tubular arms attached to tapering tubular column raised on circular domed base. The top tier features six outward-flaring star-shaped reflectors; the scrolled arms are attached to a tapering cone with domed top; this tier surmounted by a single socket from which hangs sheet-iron crystal-like devices; the finial is raised on tubular arms. The lower tier features dished reflectors having concentric rings; ribbons of sheet-iron draped between mid and lower tiers produce visual support, harmonious balance, and a graceful transition. One arm professionally re-soldered; although the candelabrum is accompanied by most of the original crystal-like devices, we had a complete set, as depicted, reproduced using period tinned iron, otherwise in a fine state of preservation. (H: 31"; diameter: 24")
