I am a Tall Gosuku Candle Holder. Let’s be real, I’m slightly lying about my height, but I am taller than most of my peers.
I've always enjoyed looking at antique candleholders at museums like the Met because after all, candlelight was society’s only source of light for far longer than electrical bulbs. There is an immense amount of variety and history behind candleholders as a result.
This upright candleholder bares semblance to some of the ones found in churches and temples because of it’s decorative stem. It also has a pricket, a detail usually found in very old candle holders before the church banned them when the pointy ends became used as weapons when religious riots broke out.
