Elegant, gleaming, and a little unnerving, this Spider Candleholder by Stuart Richards is interesting and startling in any home. Even those who like creepy crawlies will be glancing out of the corner of their eye. Not for the squeamish.
It’s a simple copper candleholder but for the provocative shape. The designer nailed this one on the head. The jointed, sectioned legs stick out at strange, realistically spider-like angles, resting delicately on the tips of pointed toes. The abdomen bulge tapers to a convincing point, and the thorax holds the candle… but we are grateful to the designer and relieved to report that there’s no head. That would be crossing the line.
This beautiful piece has a little something for everyone. Stunning on a clean surface in a modern home, ruling over the roost in a collectibles kitsch-fest, or a startling addition to a classical room, this candleholder will be striking wherever it casts its web. Perfect for the arachnophobia-free.
