To decorate your home dining table, you need to have beautiful candelabras. Not only do these pieces make any occasion beautiful but elegant too. Whether it is an engagement party, marriage or anniversary, having a set of silver plate candelabras adorning your table is one of the greatest decisions you can make.
Candelabras are basically candleholders made of metals such as brass and silver. Since the hollows of the candelabras come in different sizes, only appropriately sized candles can be used. When the candle is lit, it provides warm lighting for romantic dinners, parties, and other events.
Typically, a candelabra features several candlesticks to form three branches and above. These branches are supported by one pedestal. In most cases, silver plate candelabras are used on top of tables. However, you can also hang them from the ceiling for extra ambiance and enhanced light to the room.
What Are Silver Plate Candelabras?
As is clear from the name, silver plate candelabras aren’t made of solid silver. Rather, they feature a thin sterling silver layer covering a cheaper metal. The features of sterling silver in terms of beauty and shine can also be found in silver plate candelabras. They might be less prestigious, but they still provide you with the timelessness of the candelabra.
For pieces that have been in use for years, the outer silver coating may begin to wear off and expose the underlying metal. However, that doesn’t mean that it is inferior. Rather, its affordability makes it a good option for sterling silver candelabras.
What Style Should You Buy?
It is not enough to buy a silver plate candelabra. The style in which it’s made really matters. Say you are buying it as a gift for your close friend on her engagement. In that case, the ambiance and style of the room and the rest of the décor in the home really matters. Since the candelabra is the new addition to the room, it should complement the existing style and not clash with it.
Traditionally, candelabras features a long and slender style. Many of the candelabras made today still feature the same style. However, there exist variations in terms of size, design, and ornamentation. While some are ornate and tall, others are chunky and short. The more modern ones feature clean lines. In terms of height, silver plate candelabras range from 4 to 12 inches. That depends on the maker as well as the design.
Candelabras have been used in Jewish religious celebrations for centuries now. Thus, it should not be surprising when you find a silver plate candelabra specifically designed for these occasions. Additional styles include the Corinthian, Victorian, Edwardian, George II, and so on. Those looking for unique antique pieces would be interested in any of these two styles.
However, there are modern styles of silver plate candelabras which stand out for their sleek, streamlined style. When making modern pieces, very few elaborate details are included. You can get them from online retailers as well as brick and mortar stores.
