This candlestick has a foot of irregular, nearly circular shape which is surmounted by three tracery and oval supports with a hole drilled in the middle. Its multi-section shaft is ended with a full bush for candles. The coating is decorated near the edge with the impressed ornament of vine from which the grapes stem in the middle. Above the supports bunches of grapes are grasping spreading out leaves which tend to reach the circumference of a candle bush.
