Spiral Candleholder

Spanish, late 17th c.

Brass. We used to find these spiral sticks fairly often, but they seem to have gone into hibernation, and this is the first we've seen for a while. We think they're among the best looking. The square base makes the holder very stable and easy to move. If the split doesn't bother you, you've got a bargain here. Split in base from wear, no restoration.

5-1/2" h, 4-1/4" sq.
