Metalware - Brass/Bronze


Small Capstan Candleholder 

Dutch, c.1650

Nice to find a small one! Iconic mid-16th-century form, with square extraction holes, and plain rings on pan and base. Very well shaped nozzle.

German, 17th c.

Heavy, smallish, very well used, lots of wear -- a mortar with character. Cast with flanges flanking a figural head -- under a crown?? Good old color.

Pair of Two-Light Wall Sconces 

Dutch, 18th c

Beautiful dark, uncleaned surface; beautiful dark, uncleaned semi-nude putti. Other rococo motifs, all repousee. Heart-shaped shield for owner's initials (yours??) S-shaped arms twisted in the middle.Slightly domed reflector panel, ejector holes under nozzles. Not too many like it, especially with this impressive size.

Pair of Tall Candlesticks 

Dutch or Spanish, c.1650

Triangular bases with lions' feet (think pyramids, sphinx!) Well turned stems with balusters, rings and bulbs. Baluster nozzles -- nice to find tall 'sticks with nozzles, not prickets.
