Onion Pattern Candlestick

Height: 8cm

Decorate your table with a touch of tradition. These beautiful candlesticks complete the onion pattern tableware range.

A misnomer, there is actually nothing oniony about the onion pattern (it’s a pomegranate).

A design classic unchanged for 300 years,  Zwiebelmuster tableware, as it’s known  in German, was once compulsory gear for any young bride setting up home. Wedding dowries in the 1860s recommended a minimum Zwiebelmuster service of 7 dozen cups with plates.

The design is inspired by East Asian symbolism and  represents time, cohesion and growth.

This candlestick is hand finished by skilled craftsmen.  

Please note the candlesticks are sold singly.
