Antique Tree Of Life Candelabra with House
It’s getting harder and harder to find these beautiful old Mexican Tree of life Candelabras, given their age scarcity and fragility; so we were thrilled to find this lovely large beauty.
Hand-crafted out of moulded clay, Arboles de la Vida’s are beautiful examples of Mexican Folk Art. Typically they depict religious and cultural elements through intricate figures that work together to tell a story. Poetry in Pottery, you might say. We just adore them as objects de art.
Dearly beloved by its previous owners, this one is in great condition for its age, and features a house, birds, flowers and leaves in an earthy muted palette of terracotta, ochres, green and blue. The back is plain - painted in cream. It looks incredible back with our candlesticks in natural, blue or sage.
Lots of patina commensurate with age. Please see pictures for a visual description of its condition.
*Gifting Idea – Would make an exquisite housewarming gift along with a set of candles. Perhaps you could enscribe a card with words like – Bless this house. May the years ahead in your new abode be full of love and light.
