Spiral Candleholder 

Spanish, late 17th c.

We used to find these spiral sticks fairly often, but they seem to have gone into hibernation, and this is the first we've seen for a while. We think they're among the best looking. The square base makes the holder very stable and easy to move. If the split doesn't bother you, you've got a bargain here.

Miniature Mug or Measure 

Dutch or English, 1600-1675

This size is so rare that there is no consensus on how it was used. It may have been a toy, it may have been a child's first drinking mug after graduating from the pap bottle, or it may have measured small quantities for someone like an apothecary. Traditional bellied form, cast in two halves with a nice little loop on the handle. Ex Bill Bartley collection.

Capstan Candleholder 

Spanish, c.1650

The capstan form has a lot going for it -- plain and simple looking but nicely proportioned, easy to carry, and safe! You can't knock it over if you try. We sometimes wonder why people obviously prefered the tall-stemmed, knopped, fancier sticks…
