Re: Where candlesticks are from #general

My grandmother came to the US with my mother from Ropczyce (Ropshitz), Galicia in 1917, bringing 8 almost identical candlesticks along with her. Hers also screwed onto a footed base. They have no identifying marks.

She had 11 children, with 8 reaching adulthood, and lit one candle every shabbes for each kid. There was a separate 3-branched candelabra that she also lit for the 3 children she lost. My mom continued the tradition, lighting all 11 until her death.
