Our single taper seahorse candlesticks are a whimsical way to express your love for the creatures of the world oceans. These seahorses are a tribute to the versatility of Vagabond House pewter, cast in delightful detail and as always, hand finished. A pair is the perfect start for the centerpiece for an occasion where seafood is the main attraction. In Greek mythology the noble seahorse was known as Poseidon's Steed and artworks throughout the ages depict Hippocampus (mythological seahorses) pulling Poseidon's chariot. Our designers have created a realistic seahorse in exquisite detail to support a single, elegant taper.
About Vagabond House
Vagabond House, a Family-owned American Pewter Tableware Company, creates stunning, handmade tableware, dinnerware, serving ware, and gift items inspired by nature. Their American designers strive to create exceptional work that will benefit generation after generation. Fine craftsmanship from overseas facilities, coupled with artful American design creates opportunities for functional heirlooms. Pewter, the primary material of choice, is a mix of 95% tin and antimony and copper. It will not rust, tarnish, change or effect the taste of food or drink, requires very little maintenance and is as versatile a metal as can be. Naturally shed antlers are used in many serving tools and handles and will gain a rich aged look over time. And prized, rare, naturally fallen Makha wood trees are used throughout the line as well.
