$365 SOLD
Good early 18th century octagonal base case candlestick of French origin. It is quite hefty (weight: one pound, seven ounces) and stands 8¼ inches tall. It has a strong knop which enhances its appearance; it is carefully finished with etched lines on the base and shaft. You might also note how nicely the maker has finished the underside of the base, even including etched lines there. There is an ejector hole to help remove the burnt down stubs...

These were cast in two parts; we have a photo of the top without the bobeche showing the seam lines at the corners...
