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.

Spanish, c. 1690

A solid, heavy feel to this one. Typically turned stem on a wide, suppressed dome base. Ejection hole. One of the better examples of the form

Medieval Rosewater Bowl 

Dutch, 1500-1550

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, and, we now believe, more frequently than that.

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!
