This pair of copper candle stands are cold-forged and balanced by hand. The ends are shaped on a century-old anvil with a ball-peen hammer, and finished with texturing hammers. This pair is made from two gauges of copper, and custom fitted to dance together. They can be displayed as a centerpiece, or untwined to enjoy their individuality.
You will receive a custom hand-made pair inspired by the piece shown, and I will send you a photograph of your actual pair before shipping. The pair shown is finished with antique hand rubbed oil detailing; you may choose this finish, bright polished, verdigris, or flame painted. Please allow 2 to 3 weeks for your hand made item to be crafted and shipped.
Care and feeding: I recommend dripless candles, and offer Northern Light candles for purchase online. Should there be a breeze, and some wax runs onto the copper, simply wait for it to cool and remove gently by hand. You may brighten the polished surface gently with steel wool*, or simply clean with a soft cloth and household wax.
Antique polish and Bright pxzsawolished stands are finished with a micro-crystalline wax; Flame painted and Verdigris stands have a varnished finish.
*Do not use steel wool on varnished verdigris or flame-painted finishes!!!
