Candelabrum, Extremely Rare, Probably New York
Date/Period: Circa 1820 - SOLD


Candelabrum, Extremely Rare, Probably New York, entire view 1

Measurement: Height: 20.75"; width: 11.5"; depth: 5"

Material: Tinned sheet iron, iron wire

Condition: Very good, conical finial fabricated of period sheet iron by Dave Claggett

Additional Information: In December of 1952 antiques dealer Irving Lyon offered
Henry Francis du Pont a pair of candelabrums “as fine as I have ever seen” which du
Pont added to the Winterthur collection. This example clearly from the same shop is
outstanding in its design and rarity. The base is filled with sand for stability. Two straps
facilitate the large reflector featuring 36 domed reflectors within the dished plate with
crimped edges. The crossarm facilitating a pair of candle sockets within drip pans
having crimped edges can travel up-and-down on the standard and is held in position by
inserting the last straight link of chain into one of ten piercings.

The pattern is related to and inspired by convex circular looking glasses dating to the
early nineteenth century. The facets of these reflectors when new…in bright tinning
each provided produced a dazzling display of light. The candelabrum within the
Winterthur collection was originally owned by a Long Island family.

Reference: Iron at Winterthur by Donald Fennimore, number 138, pp. 284, 286, 287.
An identical example is published within, A Guide to Collections – Shelburne Museum,
page 108.
