One of a Pair of Traveling Candlesticks


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 304

The legs of the candlesticks fold, allowing for flat storage of the object. Seven different coats of arms are represented, but some of them are inaccurately drawn, suggesting they were chosen purely as design motifs rather than armorial bearings.
