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?

@ehBeth,
Midevil! Laughing

I never caught it. Thnx for pointing that out.

Yeah, I was wrong. Sconces are wall-hung candelabra.

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

Wait for the entymology thread where we talk about the angry emmets called 'cross ants.'
