This is a Pair of Candelabra. It was designed by Kem (Karl Emanuel Martin) Weber. Its medium is pewter and ebony.

This pair of candelabra marries a modern aesthetic with traditional craftsmanship. The abstracted floral motif exhibits Weber's familiarity with European design. The candelabra may have been purchased at Barker Brothers, where Weber was Design Director and Blanchard sold his metalwork.
