17TH CENTURY COPPER ALLOY CAPSTAN CANDLESTICK

Spain or Portugal

 

17th Century Copper Alloy Capstan Candlestick, Spain or Portugal

 

The long spool nozzle with a round extracting hole to either side,
over a waisted short stem and drip pan with upturned rim,
the plinth turned separately and with flaring foot

 

Condition : Excellent with some patination.

 
This form has been in use since the mid-1500s, the 16th century nozzles, however, with rectangular extracting holes.

Both 16th and 17th bases of the capstan form were core cast separately,
then "cleaned up" and polished on a lathe. This candlestick appears also to have been recently polished as well.
However, I do not believe it to be a later stick.
 
5" High / The Base, 4.5" Wide / 13.1 oz
