Treen Candlestick

English, early 18th c.

Yew wood. Good chunky turning, nicely colored yew wood and a solid prenece on your table. Shows traditional 17th/18th-century features, but probably a bit later. Early treen at its best. Takes a small diameter candle, probably tallow -- suggesting an early date. A pretty little thing. Two small rim chips and age-cracks. Stable now. No restoration.

6" h, 3-1/2" diam base.
