“A considerable variety of wooden candlesticks was made by Chippendale and his contemporaries.  In the smaller and earlier take specimens, the stems are generally of plain baluster form supported on a circular stand, and three is sometimes an outer socket to  a glass wind screen.  The majority of these wind screens have been broken. The stems of the more ornamental wooden candlesticks are elegantly turned, and decorated with gadrooning or with acanthus ornament.” The Dictionary of English Furniture, MacQuoid & Edwards, Vol. II, p. 23, illustrations Fig. 32-24, p. 22
