While not a signed work, this candelabrum is in the style of Mathias Goeritz (German-Mexican) 1915-1990. Goeritz fled Danzig in the threat from Nazi Germany and came to Mexico where his art and sculpture is widely recognized. For a comparable sculpture work, see “Mexican Homes of Today,” by Verna Cook Shipway and Warren Shipway, Fifth Printing, 1974, Architectural Book Publishing, New York. Page 5. Some of the cast iron wires meant to hold candles are twisted.
