A Rare Three Kings Double Socket High Skirt Candlestick, Northwest Europe A Strong and Please Form Displaying Great Prescence, entire view 1

Measurement: Height: 14.5"; base diameter: 4.75"

Material: Copper alloy

Condition: There are two small working period repaired tears to the lower base that do
not distract. The shaft and base are original to-one-another, however they have been
reattached. The double socket arm/shaft is threaded, as is generally the case, the
threads are worn and do not catch. There is a tiny loss to the upper aspect of the drip
pan mentioned for accuracy. Otherwise very good condition. Displays well.

Additional Information: Upswept molded arms continuing to angulated sockets above
three discoidal knops.

Collection of Socket Candlesticks, December 15, 1998
