Pricket Candlestick

Netherlands, 1450-1500

Brass. Top quality craftsmanship: heavy cast brass smoothly finished on the lathe. Wonderful (and rare) battlemented turret, beautiful, upward soaring form -- you can't ask for much more! Experts are divided over whether these sticks always had three feet -- if so, we've never had one, and many images in the books show them footless, but there are possible traces underneath. Very good condition, possible loss of feet.

8" h, base 3-1/4" diam.
