Gothic Arrow Head Sconce
Our rustic 8-inch Black candle holder is wall mounted. The vintage candle holder features a hand-wrought arrowhead design. These black hand forged sconces look great either singly or as a pair on either side of a fireplace.
The Black candle holder measures 22cm high and the stem is 3cm wide. The antique arrowhead measures 7cm by 7m and the traditional candle base is also 7cm in diameter.
Each cottage item is hand finished and given a beeswax coating. All our hand-forged products are carefully aged for an authentic look. You will notice different areas of colour all over this product from black to rust. Candles are not included.
Each of these old candle holders is produced for us in a small blacksmiths shop. The blacksmiths that we have chosen to make these for us are highly skilled artisans. They have a passion for their work and this will show in the end product. Once these sconces have been forged they are hand cleaned and hand polished. Once this process has been compleated the wrought iron is dressed. To dress the iron the candle holders are dipped into beeswax.
The beeswax is good for the iron. By seeping into the tiny holes on the wrought irons surface the wax forms an airtight barrier over the surface. This barrier will protect the sconce from excessive rusting. The second purpose the wax serves is that it will even out the colour of the wrought iron. The colour, in this case, will be mostly black but areas of golden brown will also show.
As these are traditional-aged sconces we have put a candle spike into the bottom of each drip tray to hold the candles. It might be that you wish to use LED battery candles. In this case please leave a note for us in the checkout area. We will happily remove these spikes for you.
