Antique French Altar Candelabra

We just brought this Turn of The Century French gilt brass candelabra into Exit 55 Antiques on Sunday. (UPDATE: Now in our booth at F.A.R.M.) This ornate antique candelabra was made for a church altar; the sheaves of wheat & bunches of grapes are symbolic of the blessed bread & wine of the sacrament of the Eucharist.

The depiction of Mother Mary on the base leads us to further believe this was made for and used in a Catholic church. There are signs of age and use, but it is a spectacular piece.
