The two arm sections are removable and are gilded and encrusted with relief molded flowers. Blue underglaze beehive mark or shield mark on bases. 16-1/4". Continental, late 19th century.

Two arms and some floral decoration on arms broken and reglued. Both with some candle wax residue and a painted band at top of tree/stems indicating possible overpainting or repair.
