Just got these new old candelabras from my mum- they were my grandma’s. She travelled a lot and collected stuff from all over the world- usually folk arty objects like this beauty. I have ogled the tree of life candelabras in Mexico for years- since the first time I went to that incredible country. The ceramic trees of life are so intricate and delicate and huge they never seemed a good idea to put in the backpack- but I thought long and hard about it before coming to my senses. I’m a fan of many traditional Mexican crafts- love the day of the dead sculptures and decorations, love the brightly colored textiles and ceramics all across the country. And I’m so thrilled to be the new proud owner of these lovely candlesticks!
