This is a replica of a Rüsselbecher or claw beaker. It has two rows of typical trunks or claws. The oldest examples of this shape date from around 500 AD. It is a typical Early Medieval and more specifically Merovingian form.
This candle holder is a reference to the bossed beaker. These are glass beakers that occur in late 16th-century or 17th-century archaeological contexts. The wall of the bossed beaker is decorated with a relief pattern in the form of drops, tears, diamonds, warts or … bosses. Just like with this candle holder.
