Magnificent 3 Light Sabbath Candelabrum standing 21.75" tall.  Made by famous maker Fraget in Warsaw, Poland, c. 1860-1872. Fully marked.

Abundant and lavish grapevine decoration, alternating grape clusters and grape leaves on vines surround and drape over the three bobeche and decorate the wide domed base. Tapered ribbed stem decorated by large floral knop.  The candelabrum arms are fully decorated with beautiful and fanciful Herons - perched facing the side candle cups. Complete with drip pans. The grapevine motif was favored for Sabbath use by Jews living in Poland, Lithuania, and Central Europe, as it represented not only the lighting of the candles, but the Kiddush blessing. An exceptional and beautiful addition to your Sabbath table.

In the 1920's and thirties many antique candlesticks were replated in chrome, as a popular alternative to Silver.
In The Cracow region of Poland, it was the custom to light 5 candles on Shabbos.
In many parts of Russia, it was forbidden for a Jewish family to own silver. Silver Plate became the popular alternative and beautiful candlesticks that were once made in silver were now silver plated.
Admired by the Greeks and the Court of Charlemagne for its astonishing color, bronze was first produced by the Semitic peoples of Mesopotamia, the Turmanic - revered for their advanced metallurgical knowledge in 3000 B.C.
Antique Sabbath candlesticks are traditionally hollow so that the candles can burn down completely. Other candlesticks are weighted with pitch or even plaster.
