I accidentally started another collection. I’ve had two tall brass candlesticks that I found at the Clignancourt Flea Market in Paris years ago. Then, recently, I picked up a short squat candlestick from a thrift store. And by chance, just last weekend I found a miniature candlestick at a flea market. I hadn’t consciously set out to create a collection of brass candlesticks, but now that I have the four together, and they look so lovely, I’ll be on the search for more. Imagine how beautiful they will look down the length of a long dinner party, with candles flickering their golden glow over the table. Perfection.
