Pair of 18th-century pewter push-up candlesticks

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

An appealing pair of small pewter candlesticks with prominent candle sockets above a double baluster shaft, the whole resting on a pleasingly shaped round base.

The pushup mechanism, for ejecting spent candles, is in working order and original.

One of the ejector disks has been lost, but the ejector shaft seems capable of doing its job without it.

Especially functional because of their small size.

Diameter: 3 ½”; Height: 5 ¾”

English, ca. 1780

Price: $225
