This collection of candlesticks range from the highly decorative to the plain pure art deco form. These designs are attributed to John Adams and moulded by harry Brown. Sprayed in pastel shades, mottles or solid colours they all date from 1930s designs. The curled snail like form perhaps being representative of waves due to Poole's proximity to the sea.
The more elaborate candelabras are designed by John Adams and feature fruit moulded around the sconces.
