Fine Domed & Faceted Base Brass Candlestick, circa 1720
Very good quality early 18th century brass candlestick with the high-domed, faceted, octagonal base which is so characteristic of French candlesticks of that period. It is made in two parts —the handmade threads joining the shaft to the base are easily seen in the photos. It stands 8¾ inches tall. It has a great patina on the underside. We have other detailed photographs that can be emailed on request.
