You are bidding on an antique Cast Iron Eagle Talon / Claw foot candle holder. Measures 5 inches tall and 4 1/8 inches between the tips of the 2 longest claws. I don't think you can see the 4th claw in the pic, but t are 4 claws. Originally I thought it was a match stick holder. Good conversation piece in nice shape for its age. Thanks for Looking!!
