Early bell metal taper stick with round base

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

A simple candle holder with a deep candle socket and a tapering shaft, which screws into a round base with raised rim. The metal has the warm glow that we attribute to bell metal, although it may simply indicate a higher percentage of copper in the original mixture.

A beautiful early candlestick in fine condition.

Probably Flemish, ca. 1650

Height: 4”; Diameter of base: 4 ¼”
