Elizabeth Weistrop Bronze Figural Candelabrum & Nut Dish - For Sale
Elizabeth Weistrop Bronze Figural Candelabrum & Nut Dish
At first glance, this unusual, whimsical piece probably doesn't "read" as a candle holder. But as the overhead detail shot shows, there are receptacles for four candles, as well as two hollowed-out "bowls" for nuts or candy. The works of New York-born Elizabeth Weistrop (American, 1916-1999) have been exhibited across the United States, and she was awarded many commissions and prizes during her long career. Much of her work - and this piece is a perfect example - displayed her strong connection with nature and realism. Wouldn't this look great lighting your holiday table? Signed in the casting, "E. Weistrop 1978."
