Re: Where candlesticks are from #general

I have one candlestick that looks just like yours. Mine is only 4.5 inches tall. My great-grandmother Hudia Nemeth brought it to this country from the Stanislawow area. She arrived here in 1921. I’ve always wondered why there is just one, not two. Many explanations are possible. My great-grandmother used it on Shabbat when she stayed with my mother’s family.

I once attended a session on antiques and the expert said that candlesticks that sit on a footed platform, like yours and mine, are always made in Europe.
