Flemish, (or English?), 1575-1625

Bronze. Bronze candlesticks are rare. This one has an old, undisturbed surface that is beautiful to behold. Its stem is the Renaissance baluster that was revived in the early 18th century. Most of this form are Flemish, but this is of comparatively thin metal with no ejection holes and the measurements are in exact inches -- suggestions of a possible English origin. The collector it came from thought it was English. Very good conditon with a dent or two to the foot rim. No restoration.
