Candlestick, German Pricket, Brass and Iron, Lobed Base
Form dates to mid 15th century, entire view

The iron pricket and conforming drip pan are riveted to this stick that measures 14.25" in total height. All exterior elements are beautifully finished and nicely filed and incised; underside is not finished and shows casting. We note that the base was drilled and shows a 3/h" piercing; perhaps to secure to tabletop within public room; there is no evidence of electrification. We are not certain that this beauty is period or early revival and have more than priced accordingly.

Massive Brass Mid Drip Candlestick
Unknown Origin
17th Century, entire view

We can't with any certainty assign a location of manufacture. The shaft and base are threaded where mated; underside of base looks great, color of brass is fine. The straight shaft under socket is an anomaly as is the flat band/ring under drip-pan; the tulip-form socket reminds us of those seen on Turkish/Moorish forms; scalloped grease-pan and base is similar to Spanish forms; This period stick remains in excellent original condition and measures: H: 15.5"; base diameter: 11.5".

Antique Candlestick, Brass, Likely Venetian,

Outwardly Flaring Banded Nozzle, Ring, Baluster and Urn Turned Shaft, entire view

Rare base metal socket candlestick; cast and turned shaft peened under the cast and turned, domed and dished base which was strengthened during working life with solder. The shaft style relates to Nuremberg candlesticks of the period yet the base is atypical; similar to Northwestern European drum bases and Islamic candlestick bases. Venice was the crossroad of the Middle East and the west, amalgamations of design typically evolved. This may be one of those hybrids. (Minor dings, vestiges of time suffered over the centuries, else fine and original; H: 7.25")

17th Century Engraved Brass Nuremberg Candlestick
Date/Period: 17th Century - SOLD


17th Century Engraved Brass Nuremberg Candlestick, entire view

Measurement: Height: 7"; base diameter: 6"

Material: Brass

Condition: Displays well, great patina; a quarter-inch hole caused be wear too upper
element; a 1/16 inch by 1-inch loss to edge of drip pan. Portions of brass
have worn/torn where foot meats base…however unfortunate the stick,
remains attractive and worthy.

Additional Information: Typical high quality, thin brass Nuremberg candlestick of the
seventeenth century with unusual engraving. The socket with thin bobeche over an egg-
shaped upper element tapers to a small diameter where it joins the lower element, the
wide drip pan caps a complex base. Overall engraving is of better quality than most of
the Nuremberg candlesticks of the seventeenth century that were probably engraved
locally. This one may have been shipped to Venice to be engraved as discussed
in Christopher Bangs; The Lear Collection A Study of Copper Alloy Socket Candlesticks
A.D. 200 -170,0
Figure 89 page 119-120. A coat of arms is engraved on the socket for
the Locatelli family: three stars over an owl; also suggesting that this Nuremberg
candlestick was engraved in Italy. While the form is typical, it is very pleasing…the
quality of the engraving and the wonderful patina unite making this an exceptional
example.

Nuremberg Candlestick, Conical Center Low Broad Base
Date/Period: 16th Century - SOLD


Nuremberg Candlestick, Conical Center Low Broad Base, entire view 1

Measurement: Height: 9"; base diameter: 5.625"

Material: Copper Alloy

Condition: The beautiful, lightly cast brass candlestick has, as is usually seen, some
tight cracking of the vulnerable mid to upper base due to thinness of casting. Fissures
long ago repaired from underside. Displays well.

Additional Information: German, Nuremberg, 16th century candlestick; socket, without
aperture, above a tapered corrugated baluster shaft between discoid knops, on a
shallow circular base. These Nuremberg candlesticks are among the finest brass work
of their time. Nuremberg was a major center of metalwork in the sixteenth century.
The very subtle differences between this candlestick and the one published in Bangs
book [see below] elevate this candlestick to superior design.

Unpierced socket above long ringed baluster centered by discoid above the cone within a low base having a shallow drip pan; made in two cast and turned part, this candlestick is joined where the shaft is received by the cone at center of the base.
