The original candlesticks were pewter, but Reverend Parris is obsessed with acquiring gold candlesticks, "But Parris came, and for twenty week he preachin nothin but golden candlesticks until he had them." The significance of the quote is that it allows the reader to understand which things the Reverend finds more important than the care of his congregation.
