Candelabrum; brass, cast and wrought, with twelve arms and a central shaft, making thriteen branches in all. The arms are constructed of six elements, each comprising of a pair of branches, which swivel round the centre of the shaft, so that they can be arranged in the same plane, or at right angles to each other, forming a three-dimensional structure in the shape of a stylised tree.
