BIRD CAGE CANDLE HOLDER WITH WOODEN BASE-18th CENTURY


Description

A relatively rare candlestick with six rods topped by a pierced disc with a shaped hook for carrying or hanging. The metal rods are 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 excellent condition for a piece that was used in the 18th and 19th century. 8”H (HETE) List Price: $SLK
