This piece has not been brought to market and was assembled by a collector who traveled extensively to find original period 17th century lighting. Each was found tucked away in a corner cupboard and are in the condition they were found. 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" tall with a squared base measurement of 4 1/4" x 4 1/4. This particular candlestick has a WONDERFUL original patina, form, construction and condition.
The socket to the piece is ever so slightly faceted in an octagonal fashion. There is a small area below this that looks like almost wiggle work crimping design. The patina blends flawlessly with the piece. Underside shows great signs of original sand casting and threading from the stem to base.
Remains of an old collection or museum tag is present on the underside. There are some areas of wear to the piece and some age pitting at areass, all are signs one could expect of a candlestick that was made and used for so many centuries.
Slight tilt to the candlestocket. Overall a Very Good example.One of the nicest of this style we have ever offered in regards to form and patina. Great original form and character and certain to be a great addition to any Period Collection. Get images that make Supersized seem small. Tailor your auctions with Auctiva's.
