Dating back to the sixteenth century, the Ricco design is heavily influenced by the frescoes of Renaissance artist Pietro Perugino. He was the mentor of Raphael, and their work inspired the patterns of Deruta ceramics that date back to the sixteenth century. This ceramic candlestick was handcrafted and painted by the artists in the classical fashion in traditional Renaissance colors. While originally constructed as a candlestick, this piece has been drilled for a wire so that you may use it as a lamp base if you wish.
The Deruta Ricco Blue Candlestick is 8.5" in height.
