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.

three discoidal knops.

Form dates to mid 15th century
A rare and beautiful Germanic form - SOLD


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".
