Rushlight/Candle Holder ca:1700-1750

An interesting design for a candle stand  and rushlight. The candleholder is not stationary. As the horizontal plane changes , the candle holder moves and remains upright. Was this candleholder used on a movable object such as a ship? However it was used extensively since  the feet and candleholder are well worn. The candleholder has a nice twist on its stem and the turns on the feet as wells the ends of the rush holder make the overall design interesting.(KTKE)
Dimension: 191/4" High
