This is a circa 1690 Octagonal base brass candlestick in a great early patina. Note the underside has a penned through construction where the candlestem meets the base, great early craftsmanship! There is a remains of an old string around the threading area of the stem, this was common to place a string in said area to prevent the piece from wobbling.Most certainly Spanish this is a fine example of period metalworking in early lighting. Note the typical formation of center orb shaped turned areas. Stands 5 1/2" tall with a base measurement of 4 1/2" x 4 1/2. Please consult the images for signs of original construction and condition. The piece is present in its original as found condition, as such there is remains of old tallow and wax in the candlestock as well as the drip pain. Some general wear and signs of age, again this is a period 300+ year old piece! A great as found literally untouched patina early candlestick. Please visit our other listings this week for more early lighting.
