This candlestick could be cleaned up and polished if one chose to undertake the time and effort. We personally feel the need to offer them in their original as found patina and character; though again the purchaser could display them in what ever means they see fit and at their discretion. Likely Spanish this is a good example of period metalworking in early lighting dating from the 17th century.
Stands 6 1/2" tall with a squared base measurement of 4 3/4". Please consult the images for signs of original construction and condition. There is some wear to the piece. Has an original hole on the socket to work out the bits of wax and tallow. A heavier example, again with great patina.
About good+/very good condition; though considering the piece is over 300 years old its amazing its survived time in the first place. Again all aforementioned areas of condition are signs one could expect of a candlestick that was made and used for so many centuries! Great original form and character and certain to be a great addition to any Period Collection. Sorry there are NO EXCEPTIONS to this New Rule.
