17th Century Dutch Heemskerk Candlestick of Very Successful Form, Image 1

Small seventeenth century Heemskerk candlestick of great form. Heavy socket with slight upward flare, pierced with a small circular aperture over a shaft with rudimentary ring above and below a suppressed ball, mid drip pan, over the lower shaft which echoes the upper shaft yet displaying larger and bolder elements. This on a domed base with flared lower collar. All original, with probably recent soft solder applied to underside of base as often done to tighten shaft. This candlestick is of superior design and relatively small size for the late Heemskerk
