Diminutive Capstan-Form Candleholder

Probably Dutch, c.1625

Brass. What a little beauty! Scalloped and ring-turned drip pan set high, right below the bobeche. The "capstan" and base are both decorated with vertical lines, and doesn't the extracting hole look huge on such a small c'holder! Good condition with minor age-cracks.

3-1/2" h, 3-1/4" diam.
