A fantastic five candle candelabra made by the Wilton Metalworks Comapny. This heavy brass candelabra is from the mid century (or earlier) that features 5 holders for candles on a stem. The center holder is slightly taller than the other four candles on the sides. The other four candles are all at the same height. Under the candle spots is a nice heavy brass openwork design that screws into the large round base. The base is tiered and has two sets of ridges around each of the tiers. The stem and holders are round as is the base. This classic shaped five candle holder is circa 1950s when the Wilton Company was producing brass items. See NOTE below.
The Wilton Metalworks Company began in 1892 when Ralph P. Wilton, Sr. began working for his uncle at the Susquehanna Casting Company near Wrightsville, Pennsylvania. Their foundry produced industrial iron castings for other manufacturers. Fifty years later, Ralph P. Wilton, Jr. expanded the family business and began Wilton Products (1940) which made cast iron gifts and the Wilton Brass Company (1955) which initially produced industrial brass, aluminum, and iron castings. In 1963, the company gained a lot of notoriety when Wilton, Jr. developed the formula for an aluminum-based alloy called Armetale, and used it in a new line of Wilton products.
