Bird Candelabra

Fitch & McAndrew
£170
Bird Candelabra by Fitch & McAndrew is a functional, yet ornamental, piece inspired by the cuckoo birds which nest in their garden in rural Scotland. The candelabra has been carefully modelled by hand and finished in warm honey tones that also emulate the tonality of the couple’s surrounding landscape.

Due to the natural variation inherent in glazes the finish may vary.

The Bird Candelabra is not sold with candles.
