This exceptional vintage Portuguese sterling silver five light candelabrum has a waisted shaped form.

This silver candelabrum retains the original hallmarked detachable silver screw fit arms.

The cast sterling silver silver opposing scrolling arms are ornamented with large scrolling leaf designs and accented with a floral motif to each incurve.

The circular waisted capitals are ornamented with leaf decoration to the lower portions, in addition to leaf borders to the fixed sconces.

Each capital surmounts a circular shaped drip pan, incorporating a scrolling leaf border to the shaped rim.
