Polished red candlesticks seem to be rarer than polished black ones, perhaps because blackware was so popular in the mid-20th century when most Southwest Indian Pottery candlesticks were being made.  This one from Santa Clara Pueblo is tall and graceful and decorated simply with white-outlined red triangles.  It shows evidence of prior use.

 

Condition:  very good condition
