Timeless are pleased to offer a Ceramic Candelabra dating to the 5th - 2nd Century B.C.E.

 

One of a pair fired in Ancient Greece well over two millennia ago, these delicate examples of Ancient Greek ceramicware would have supported candles made from either tallow or beeswax and would probably have belonged to high status individuals, as low-grade olive oil was much cheaper to burn.

 

Mounted on a plinth of aged oak, the candelabra is around 22cm in height.
