Here's The $400 Racist Candlestick Being Advertised By Anthropologie

Words alone cannot describe this bizarre vintage-style racist candlestick — complete with a “mammie” effigy — that’s currently being offered for $398 on Anthropologie.com (click to enlarge).

Jezebel spotted it, and also noticed that there’s a bust of JFK on there, too, just for good measure:

Here’s the most obvious detail:

But don’t forget the one on the bottom, either:

The item was offered as “One of a kind / Antique porcelain, tin, glass / Wipe with dry cloth.” It was also made in the U.S.

Oddly, Anthropologie has appended a message to the item saying, “We’re sorry. This product is no longer available.”

Perhaps it was so popular it sold out.
