Small Pricket Stick

Spain/Portugal, c.1635

Brass. Look at the perfect progression through the compressed ball, the ring and the baluster on the stem -- artistry. Good capstan-form base and well turned drip pan. These smaller prickets were domestic: it's the larger ones that were ecclesastical. Good condition with tiny casting fault on pan. No restoration.

6-1/2" h, 2-3/4" diam.
