  • Category: Contemporary
  • Origin: Santa Clara Pueblo
  • Medium: clay
  • Size: 6-5/8” height x 4-1/2” x 4-1/2” base
  • Item # C3926Z
  • Price: $950.00

The twisted stems on this pair of candlesticks represent the long strip of white deer hide used by pueblo women to wrap their legs, starting from the top of the moccasins, up the legs to above the calf.  The bases of these candlesticks are in the shape of an arrow. Take note how the handle flows right into one of the wraps.

This pottery candlestick pair is not signed with the name of a potter, an indication that it probably is circa 1930s.


Condition: both are in very good condition with some minor scratches, as expected on useable items of this age.

Provenance: this  Santa Clara Pueblo Pair of Black Candleholders with Twisted Stem is from the household of a Santa Fe resident
