Did you ever wonder how Professor Plum did away with someone in the library in the game of Clue with a mere candlestick? If he had one of these candlesticks that weigh 3 pounds 11 ounces each, it would have been no problem.
These 14 inch sticks made of cast brass have been given a lovely antiqued patina. The 6 ½ inch diameter base is scalloped into crisp points and decorated with 6 molded acanthus leaves. The waisted shaft, which screws into the base, also has acanthus leaf decorations. Under the large fluted drip pans are four more smaller leaves. The bottoms are felted in black. The look is very Hollywood Regency.
