Original Late 17th Century Brass Candlestick 300+ Years Old with Heart Shaped Feet! This is a circa 1690 brass candlestick in a great early patina. Note the underside has four "heart" shaped feet! Most Likely Spanish this is a fine example of period metalworking in early lighting. Note the typical formation of a hole on the candlesocket that would allow the user to work out bits of wax and tallow.
Has an "octagonal" shape to the base. This is almost identical to those illustrated in early lighting volumes. Stands 6 7/8" tall with a squared base measurement of 5"x5. Please consult the images for signs of original construction and condition. Very slight tilt to the candlestem.Where the stem meets the base there is evidence that at one time there was a solder repair which has been since gone. There is patina, oxidation and wax/tallow to the piece more noticable at the base.. It has developed into a wonderful tone of an almost bronze like quality. About very good condition with some general wear and signs of age, again this is a period 300+ year old piece! Please visit our other listings this week for more early lighting.
