Metalware - Brass/Bronze


Heemskirk Candlestick 

Dutch, c.1650

Good, heavy example with old, unpolished surface. Plain and functional with some turned decoration, but nothing fancy. Round ejector holes. Museum accession number on base.

Rosewater Bowl 

English, 1680-1720

If you're imposing you don't need to be pretty. Beautifully made, heavy bowl with stepped rim and a running dovetailed joint between bottom and booge. No decorative frou-frous at all, just a large, perfectly proportioned bowl. Rosewater bowls were used for washing the hands between the courses of a meal, but you can use it for whatever you want. It's the largest we've seen, and we're sure you'll love it as much as we do.

Hearth Hook 

English, Mid-18th c.

Heavy cast brass with spiral twist. A nice change from the far more common wrought iron examples.

Toddy Pot 

English, 1800-1820

Its ball feet allowed it to stand on the hot hearth to keep the hot toddy hot! A hot item indeed! There are not too many of these attractive pots to be found today -- yours can be one of the few hearths to have one!

Pair of Queen Anne Candlesticks 

English, 1710-25

Hexagonal bases and turned stems cast in one piece. Lovely soft edges from centuries of polishing. Label from the Lillian B Cogan collection.
