Colonial Pair English Solid Brass Candlesticks Ca 1700s
This is a pair of English solid brass candlesticks circa early 1700's. During the Colonial period, candles were a primary source of light and were widely used by the early settlers. Much of what they used for candlesticks was imported and brass appears to have been the choice for households that could afford them. Prior to the 19th century, candlesticks made of solid brass were quite heavy. The pair of brass candlesticks are threaded with a long solid shaft that screws into the threaded turned brass base (see photo). Each of the brass candlesticks has a slight variation in size because they were cast and turned by hand. There are slight casting marks on the early candlesticks and unmarked. Each brass candlestick is nearly 2 pounds in weight! MEASUREMENTS: One candlestick is 8 ¼ inches high and the other is 8 ½ inches high. Both are 3 inches wide at the base. North Bayshore Antiques
