A surprising blend of cultures merge when this English cast brass candlestick was attached to a carved coconut shell, after the brass base broke off.
Candle holder with replacement base stands 6-3/4″ tall and the repair was most likely done in India in the early to mid 1900′s.
This typical brass candle holder shows what the original base might have looked like.
