New Mexican Hanging Candelabra
A handmade revival candelabra; reproduced from the original from the ex Larry Frank collection, pictured on page 193 of A Land So Remote Volume 3, Wooden Artifacts of Frontier New Mexico. The hanging candle holders came from a church near Espanola, NM. The stems of the ornamental candelabra have been sculpted geometrically. The actual candle holding devices have been fashioned from strips of tin nailed to the cross arms.
Our revival version of the New Mexican Hanging Candelabra features a warm natural finish and includes the antiqued tin candled holders, and one set of eight 5″ beeswax candles.
Dimensions: 26” tall x 24” diameter
