PILGRIM ERA TABLE TOP SPLINT/CANDLE HOLDER


Description

WHAT IS SO INTERESTING ABOUT THIS PIECE IS THAT THIS 17th/EARLY 18th CENTURY FORGED IRON TABLES TOP CANDLE AND SPLINT HOLDER IS SO WELL MADE. IT HAS A SPRING ACTION SPLINT HOLDER THAT IS RIVETED TO THE SHAFT AS WELL AS PENNY FEET. THE SQUARE SHAFT IS PREENED THROUGH THE CANDLE BAR AND THE BLACKSMITH HAND-FORGING MARKS ON THE IRON ARE SO EVIDENT AND WONDERFUL. RARE TO FIND SUCH AN EARLY FORM WITH ABSOLUTELY NO ISSUES. (TOBKD) DIMENSIONS: HEIGHT 20 3/4” LIST PRICE:$1085
