Hanging cast bronze candelabra by Michael Harjes, Germany 1960s

Cast bronze candelabra. It has 4 arms that are set on a central rod. The arms can rotate around the rod. At the bottom it is capped with a cast bronze cap and at the top it has a cast bronze cap with an eye. It comes with 4 cast bronze suspension rods with hook and eye and one cast bronze ceiling hook. Each suspension rod measures 24cm in length. By hooking the rods onto each other the total length is adjustable. The candelabra itself measures 33cm from side to side and 28cm in height. Harjes Metallkunst (metal art) has for three generations worked bell bronze into candle holders, bowls, door handles and other decorative objects. The Harjes collection offers designs which are ideal for festivities, everyday use or religious occasions. The Harjes designs, from conception through to their final production, are made using traditional hand crafting methods which have developed through the generations. The products meld traditional metal working crafts with artistic design to create pieces which from the past to the present day are very popular among those who appreciate design, function and solidity. Today, Harjes Metallkunst is one of the few remaining traditional metal art businesses in Germany. Harjes designs are easily recognisable due to the design elements which are reflections of the natural world and the surface structure of the bell bronze which is moulded in sand. The historic origins of the business date back to the last century. Harjes Metallkunst is a third generation family business run by Tobias Harjes, who learned the ancient craft of armoury metalworking from his father which was passed down from his grandfather.
