I am at a loss for words! Copper stand with copper monkey candle holder, I bought for $3.50 at Redwood Gospel Thrift Store. I have other candle holders, sterling, Orrefors , porcelain, I do not need a monkey candle holder, but I bought it. Do not know where made, who made, how old or anything about it. Paint job is pretty good and I like his copper tie! If anyone knows about these copper monkeys please tell me. I need to unload some items as my house is filling up! This may be first to go!! haha Thanks for looking I guess it is folk art! MAYBE HE SHOULD BE MELTED AND MADE INTO PENNIES! HAHA Don
