    Description

    A Marilyn Monroe-Related Rustic Standing Candlestick, 1962. Made of wood, hand-carved, in two parts that affix together at the center, one metal spike in top center for candle placement; purchased by the Nunez family after they bought Marilyn's house and on display in Marilyn's house (albeit after her death) until they sold this piece to the current owner sometime in the mid-1960s. To be clear, Marilyn Monroe never owned this piece, but it does have the distinction of "living" in her house for a few years in the 1960s! (Please note there are numerous natural cracks in the wood and there is candle wax on all sides.)
    44" x 8" x 7"
