Decorative wall candle holder, which is an unusual piece of colourful Indian wall art. Each candle holder is incredibly ornate with multiple candle cup holders. We have commissioned only five pieces to be skillfully handmade by metalworkers and then painted by an artist. They are based on authentic vintage pieces we have previously acquired, the candle cup holders aren't perfectly flat, therefore we don't suggest actual tea lights, but rather, LED lights for safety.
Ornate Wall Rack size: W100cm x D6cm x H122cm.
The candle cups are called 'diyas' which are oil and wich lamp cups and would have been used in generations past in Indian homes. This wall art would have been lit for special occasions and used for pujas and prayers. Each cup has been skillfully handpainted to depict deities, animals and charters from Hindu mythology. We only have a few available, so make sure grab a beautiful piece of Indian history whilst you can.
With a multitude of profiled, fragile and hand-painted animals and human forms, this is a wonderful statement piece for the home.
Today it's still possible to achieve a stunning look, but with electric tea lights. Alternatively, without candles this would still make a beautiful piece of art for any room in your home.
Wall candle holder size: W67cm x D5cm x H90cm.
Here at Scaramanga, we spent ages admiring the level of detail and loving the hand-craftsmanship of this decorative wall art. Whether it's mounted in a bedroom, bathroom, hallway or living room, this highly desirable art is going to cause a visual stir.
Again, this is an old piece, over the years it has gathered signs of age and use. It has distressing on some of the surfaces, giving it an authentic rustic appeal. Some of the diyas maybe missing...a victim of history.
DO NOT USE WITH WAX CANDLES OR OIL WICKS.
