What is a candlestick and what is the difference for a chandelier?
It is not known for sure when and where the candlestick was invented, but its presence can be noticed throughout the history of mankind, accompanying man over the centuries. In general, a candlestick is nothing more than a candle holder formed by three main parts: the base, the stem and sideboard or sconce, where the candle is placed and lit.
Only attention to one detail: the candlestick holds only one candle, unlike the chandelier. This, in fact, is the big difference between these two objects.
