A very rare English single blade candlestick of the "Bunsen burner" form- 15th century. This is the first acknowledged English design/manufactured candlestick. The base of the shaft is encased by a short sleeve, inside the circular base with banded decoration, and is peened and turned. This candlestick differs slightly from other known examples, a variation of the form, each known example having subtle design differences; all have a single blade mid shaft, the low base, and the barrel shaped, unpierced socket. This stick displays very pleasing surface showing centuries
of gentle wear.
