|Here we have a whimsical tole painted candelabra in the form of a happy tangle of flowers, fruit, foliage and vines. It's early, as tole goes, and probably dates to the 40's or 50's. The flowers are sort of splashed with bright colors, and neither flowers or leaves are painted in one dimension. Everything has shading and outlines, despite the slightly haphazard approach. I love that whimsy, but also particularly like the curly feet and the twisted column. The candle stand is in expected condition with a little wax in the cups, some chipping to the enamel and they always seem a little dirty, but that's part of the charm of these pieces (if you buy this and clean it I don't want to hear about it). The candlabra stands about 12" and has a spread of about 14".|
