Hedgerow Antiques

Hank Laman | Waverly, NY | 607-425-9901 | hedgerow_antiques@hotmail.com

Hi, I'm Hank, welcome to my site. I opened Hedgerow Antiques in 2000 and specialize in 18th and early 19th century antiques in brass, copper, iron and treen. Some of my items are later but I prefer to deal in items produced before the beginning of mass production, approximately 1820. Being antiques, they all show signs of use and age. I don't post items for sale if they have major issues. I will mention minor dings and imperfections in my descriptions. I shop around checking prices and keep mine a bit lower than the market. I do this because I enjoy the business and the hunt and I want to sell. I accept checks, money orders and Paypal. I prefer to ship using U.S.P.S. Priority Mail but if you prefer another way please tell me. Any item may be returned within three days in it's original condition for a full refund minus the shipping cost. Again, welcome. Enjoy your stay. If you have questions or concerns as you browse through the photos please let me know. I do this because I enjoy it. Don't feel you are bothering me if you ask for another photo or a more complete description. Thank you, Hank

Pair seamed brass candlesticks, c.1690-1700

The acorn knops identify these candlesticks as being produced between 1690 and 1700. These are examples of some of the first seamed candlesticks. They were made this way with the columns cast in two halves in order to use less brass which was the more expensive component, labor was cheap. The columns are straight, the angle makes them appear to lean. There is a small hole in one corner of one as shown in the photo. They are 6" tall.

Pair seamed brass candlesticks

Graceful pair of seamed candlesticks from around 1770. Seaming indicates that the columns were cast in two pieces and braised together.

They're 11 1/2 inches tall.
