Antique distressed giltwood French altar candlestick from mid 19th century, made of turned and hand-carved wood.
Original shabby chic candle holder in antique chippy condition with no restorations.

As usual for church candlesticks, it is gilded only on the front side. Back side ochre colored.
The gilding is done with a gold colored silver leaf over a gesso layer.
The layer of gesso has large and numerous lacks, that give the candlestick a charming shabby chic look.

The wood in the upper part is over time a bit curved.

The candlestick is composed of two parts (one simply fitted into the other) and is shipped disassembled. No tools or glue needed, just insert the upper part into the lower one.

The top is handmade of forged iron with genuine rusty patina.
