Capstan Candlestick 

Dutch, 1525-50

Early Dutch form with tall, tapered capstan; short, tapered stem and rectangular ejection holes -- necessary because the tallow candles of the period were soft and difficult to pull out of the nozzle. (We've not had a capstan for some time, so I jumped at the chance to buy a small collection at a reasonable price.)

Capstan Candlestick 

Spanish, 1550

One of the better examples of the form, with a broad capstan and shortish stem. Ejection holes - necessary because the tallow candles of the period were soft and difficult to pull out of the nozzle. (We've not had a capstan for some time, so I jumped at the chance to buy a small collection at a reasonable price.)
