Iron coiled wire candlestick with scalloped cup and iron snuffer with chain. Three strips of iron form the base below a scalloped cup, in the center of which is a coiled iron wire. It extents out horizontally at the top and has a hook. In the center of the coil is a cup with a wire extending out between the coils which adjusts the candlestick height. Hanging from the hook at the top is a cone-shaped snuffer with chain and loops on the end for suspension.
