Tooth and Claw Alter Candlesticks

Alter candlesticks with edging that looks like confectionery, the bases are fashioned from acanthus leaves.

They could just slither away when you back is turned.

Benevolent malevolent Candelabra

Like the witches house in Hansel and Gretal this candlestick seems good enough to eat but take a bite and it may make you sick.
