A 16th century brass Candlestick
An early 16th century candlestick dating from 1500 – 1550 A.D. An unusually large example, the socket with pierced aperture above shaft featuring elongated, ribbed pear-shaped knops and six disc knobs above drip base with conical center and flared sides. These candlesticks were revited and this example was soldered later. A fine original patinated example.
Condition: Good, some minor ware consumerate to age and use, the lower disk has a small dent and crack and as mentioned above, the stick was revited later.
Dimensions: 26 x 16cm
