Late 15th Century Near Pair of Gothic Candlesticks, Northwest Europe
Date/Period: Late 15th C.


Late 15th Century Near Pair of Gothic Candlesticks, Northwest Europe, pair view

Measurement: Height: 9.5"; base diameter: 4.75"

Material: Copper Alloy

Condition: Very good

Additional Information: These Gothic candlesticks (assembled) from the late fifteenth
or early sixteenth century are of two-part construction and display the typical Gothic
socket with square aperture and the typical flat knop below, but now feature new
elements to the shaft. Below the knop is a long ringed baluster, another flat knop, and a
short baluster before the shaft terminates in a rudimentary ring and is joined to what
Michaelis calls a "hollow incurved conical base". (See Ronald Michaelis: Old Domestic
Base Metal Candlesticks
, Antique Collectors Club, 1978 page 49-61; Chapter 5,
Candlesticks with Hollow Incurved Conical Bases – Group Two). Whether these
candlesticks temporally followed the more typical Gothic knopped candlesticks with high
skirt base, or whether they were a contemporary design variant is not known. This pair
of candlesticks is nearly identical with slight turning differences on the high skirt base
and, while the lowest shaft element on one has shallow ringing, the other is plain
(though it is possible that the ringing has been polished-out removed). For a related
example see figure 27 Christopher Bangs; The Lear Collection A Study of Copper Alloy
Socket Candlesticks A.D. 200 -1700.

successful examples.
