I am looking for some tall iron, multi, level candle stands around 4' or 5' tall. The kind they used to have back the hallways of old castles. I see them in movies all the time and my girlfriend bought two at an estate sale but other then that I can't find them anywhere online. Not even a picture. I figure they must be called something specific. Anyone know?
this kind of thing?
they are standing candelabra
that midevil tag is cracking me up
I never caught it. Thnx for pointing that out.
Yeah, I was wrong. Sconces are wall-hung candelabra.
Sconces can be found in candelabra form but this is also a sconce
and so is this
I seem to remember they're called something like prick candle sticks, because they have a pointed iron thingy, kinda like a small spear point (that's the "prick"), that you impale the base of a thick candle on so it won't fall over. gonna try googling it and see what i get.
Well, I was close. They're called pricket candlesticks (google "picture of pricket candlestick"). They seem to come in shorter and longer sizes
Scones ? ! ? ! ?
What do baked goods have to do with candle holders?
pricket candlestick is the form of standing candelabra you're describing
Jack had better be extra nimble !
Wait for the entymology thread where we talk about the angry emmets called 'cross ants.'
