A Pair of Persian Filigree Candlestick – 30 cm – Foliage Pattern

In the bustling bazaars of Isfahan, where aromas of spices intertwine with distant murmurs of haggling, the age-old tradition of Persian filigree or Malileh Kari (Persian: ملیله کاری) comes alive. At the heart of this vivid tapestry of culture and trade, skilled artisans devote themselves to crafting masterpieces that resonate with history and elegance. This exquisite pair of candlesticks is a true testament to their unparalleled skill and dedication.

Each candlestick stands tall at 30 cm (11.8 inches), casting a stately silhouette that commands attention. The gaze naturally travels across the 10 cm (3.9 inches) width, lingering on the intricate filigree work that embellishes its surface. This meticulous craftsmanship, enriched with silver-coated copper, is a celebration of centuries of Persian artistry. Despite their majestic appearance, each piece is delicately slim, with a depth of merely 3 cm (1.2 inches), and weighs just around 500 g (1.1 lbs).

A fascinating detail to note is the design’s practicality: the candlesticks are crafted to hold candles with a thickness of 2 cm perfectly, ensuring that the flames burn steady and bright, encapsulating the radiant spirit of Isfahan.

Beyond being mere objects, these candlesticks tell tales. Tales of moonlit nights in Persian gardens, where the soft glow of candles would dance on mosaic tiles. Tales of grand feasts where the flickering light would cast mesmerising patterns across the room, and tales of whispered secrets shared under its gentle glow.

In gifting or owning this pair, you are not just procuring an item but inheriting a fragment of Persian culture. Every time their shimmer catches your eye or they light up a corner of your space, be reminded of the rich tapestry of history, art, and passion they embody.

For those with a discerning eye for luxury and a penchant for history, these candlesticks aren’t just decor; they’re a bridge to a time where artistry was a way of life. Embrace the luminance and legacy of Isfahan. Let its ancient charm and elegance brighten your world.
