This is a large and impressive "Tree of Life" Candelabra from Metepec Mexico. It is made to hold 5 candles, and stands 19.5" tall (without candles), and is 14.5" wide. For generations every couple in the rural area of Metepec would receive a Tree of Life as a gift at the time of their wedding. But by the 1980s young couples no longer received the traditional Tree of Life gift.In addition to Adam and Eve, this piece holds many flowers, leaves, birds and round fruits. The pottery is in very good shape, with very little chipping, and no cracks or repairs. The metal wires that attach these pieces to the "tree" are quite rusted, indicating the piece is rather old. Exactly how old, we don't know. If you have any questions or need more photos, just let me know & I'll get right back to you. Thank you for your interest in our unique product line!
