About this object

Three candleholders in the form of sinuous leafy branches, support bobeches and twine around a glass vase, which is shaped like a gourd and has slanting ridges. The holders are connected to a metal collar, and the base of the vase and the whole cage can be removed by pulling out several pins and screws so the separate pieces can be cleaned.
