Candlestick holder

There are 2 candlesticks like this in the treasury, each decorated with diamonds, rubies, pearls and emeralds. The large base on the candlestick is due to the fact that they were intended to be placed on the floor, on each side of the Peacock Throne, during formal ceremonies.

Each candlestick is 40 cm. (16 in.) tall and weighs 5 kilograms (12 lbs.)
