    Christmas is around the Corner. Thought I would post my 1958 HOLT HOWARD Candle-abra. Still have the original box, and the instructions along with all original 12 pieces. No candles for it, but I image one can still find some to fit it.

    It is so Nostigic for Xmas

    Thanks for LOOKING / LOVING !!

      Very nice gift!! Extremely interesting candelabra. Love it!!
    5. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 5 years ago
      These are very cool. You do know that the heat of the candles makes the whole top turn around! How awesome is it that you have the whole thing! Gotta run now...see you soon!
    6. antiquerose antiquerose, 5 years ago
      Yes, it would have 4 small tall candles in the bottom, and the heat of the candles make the fan go around, thus -- the Angels with the little copper sticks hanging off them turn around and the little copper sticks hits the *bells* as they go around. So it is Musical too.

      Here is some info on it

      and Nice little story here:

      http://collectibles.about.com/od/christmascollectibles/p/Holt-Howard-Ceramics-Who-Is-Holt-Howard.htm

      They made a lot of Christmas things, PLUS that line of ware called PIXIEWARE ( I think it one word not 2 words ).....LOL
    7. antiquerose antiquerose, 5 years ago
      Here is one like mine ( but with the Candles ) and box and instructions. It says there a date of 1949, so not sure the true date ( 1949 or 1958 ). Maybe mine is older, as I could find NO date on anything. I was going by info on the net I found. See what that goes for in a while.

      Very interesting and different from any others!Do the pieces above candels move in the hot air from them?
    9. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 5 years ago
      That is so sad that something like this sells for such a low price! That chaps my hide. I've said it before, but come on, at least a dollar a year, right?!?
    10. antiquerose antiquerose, 5 years ago
      LOL.....Yeah would think so. It IS COPPER and copper is pricey. Plus how much more vintage can you get with these -- PLUS the Box -- Plus the Instructions. All of that should command a bit of $$ - You would think!!

      Rick55 --> Thanks Rick for the comment!! I LOVE Xmas too. It is my favorite time of the year. I love the music, the lights, the sparkle....and the memories.

      A little poem I remember I got on an Xmas card when I was really young!!

      Never a Christmas Morning -
      Never a Old Year Ends !
      But someone thinks of someone....
      Old Days, Old Times, Old Friends!!

      Just assembled my old dearly loved Angle-abra & it works great! It is probably 65+ yrs old (I am 69). I still have its original box, all the parts and the booklet for assembly- all in near new shape thanks to my mom's TLC for years. Mine has a round copper base with the same kind of holders for 3 candles attached. Luckily I have my last 3 white candles for this year. I do not have the computer skills to take a photo & post it on the internet.
