The Nestor Tripod in Gold from Villa & House is modeled after ancient Greek and it possesses a timeless design appeal. It is simple, elegant, modern, and ancient at the same time. The Nestor Tripod is made of cast metal and finished with hand-applied gold leaf. The original model was used for lighting, so we recommend using it to hold a votive candle, burn incense, place an orchid or keep trinkets or offerings. The Nestor tripod would work beautifully on a living room mantel or two and could make a wonderful pairing on an entryway console.
