Capstan Candlestick

Spanish, 1550

Brass. Good, heavy casting, hand-cut ejection holes. Well turned rims on capstan. A nice example of the form. Ejection holes were needed: 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.) Good condition with typical small dings and dents . No repairs or restoration.
