Piranesi’s use of antique ornament profoundly influenced the work Robert Adam, who designed this candle stand and its pair around 1777 for the London house of his client, Sir Watkin Williams Wynne. A synthesis of an antique tripod with a Roman altar, the candle stand would have supported a silver-branched candelabrum.
