These early 20th century pewter candle stands convey blessings of joy and good fortune. The stem of each stand is shaped as the 囍 symbol for "double happiness," a traditional motif of marriage and conjugal bliss. Each of the dishes is shaped as an ingot, a symbol of wealth and a pun for "it will be as you wish." Minimally decorated yet wonderfully sculptural, the stands make a charming accent to a bookcase, console, or table setting.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.

Andrea Goldman | Andrea Goldman Design

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
