    Antler chandeliers

    Just a few pic's of some Antler Chandeliers I used to knock out, still have a few left. At the time I had a small stall in a local Antique/Art dealers,more of a hobby then a serious commercial venture, started off with one for my dining room, of which still as pride of place over the dinner table. The candles only lit on special occasion's, still a really nice effect "bouncing" off the Click image for larger version.

ID:	25250Wild Red deer antler. These were part of a range I produced with a mate of mine, comprising of hand made/finished wrought iron goods, Wine racks,kitchen Pot/Pan holders etc. They all sold quite well, however my main stay bread & butter business was thankfully doing very well and taking up whatever precious spare time I had available. I made about 15 in all of the Antler chandeliers, efore I ran out of Antler, my supply useually scrounged for a few pints off shooting pals. Antler Art/furniture is i belive a huge business in the states, but to my knowledge still only a few outlets over here, and from what I've seen very expensive be-spoke pieces. I kicked around the idea of an electrified version, but in the end decided against this, not so much on added cost grounds, my own personal preference was for the candle lit orginal version, much more natural and in keeping with the natural materials utilised. I'm considering giving this project another go, I would therefore be greatful for any advice as to were I may source reasonably priced preferably Wild Red Deer antler.

    Thanks in advance.

    They look excellent. Have you ever made such a thing to actually go on the table rather than hang above it. I gave a friend of mine a set a few years back for her to make into a candle holder for the table and she has not yet been able to find anyone to do it.

    Very nice work! As howa243 said, do you make anything that goes on a table?

    Here is the one they have in a gun shop over in stockbridge.

    That's really impressive!

    I couldn't tell from the photo, but are the bits that hold the candles turned wood or metal? I have been thinking about using a red deer antler to make a centrepiece for the dining room table, with maybe two or three candle holders on a single antler. I've searched a few times but haven't found the right candle holders yet.

    Did you see the prices for the antler chairs at the game fair? Second mortgage required.

    Amazing indeed but the line between tasteful and tacky is a very thin one!
