18th C. “BIRDCAGE” CANDLESTICK – WOODEN BASE

A relatively rare candlestick with six rods topped by a pierced disc with a hook for hanging which is attached to a turned and waisted wooden base. The birdcage is a safety feature which prevented the candle from toppling out of the holder and reduced the possibility of a fire. The candlestick is all original and in quite good condition for a piece that was used  and over 200 years old. 91/4”H  
List Price: $585 (AOKD)
