Candlestick with a Young Page


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Affluent homes had candles and oil lamps, which were too expensive for the poor. This candle holder demonstrates the desire to make home furnishings ornamental, imaginative, and indicative of status. It is cast in the shape of a young page who kneels to hold the candle for his "lord"--understood to be the person to whom this candlestick belonged.
