The Colonial Revival of the early 20th century created a new demand for objects that evoked cultural memories of the nation's colonial past. When technological advances lessened the demand for traditional blacksmithing, Cornelius Kelley of Deerfield, Massachusetts, shifted his attention to creating decorative ironwork. The Indian House Memorial in Deerfield opened in 1930 as a museum and a display space for traditionally handcrafted objects. The Memorial commissioned Kelley to create dozens of wrought iron items, including these candle stands.
