I have spent many years learning the world of Antiques and have traveled to England and Europe over 55 times. I seldom let a small town with a small museum go by without a visit.

This is a very early circa 1730s to 1760 spiral candlestick it is made with a wire heavy duty. And spiraled to accept and hold the candlestick it has a decorative movement handle it moves relatively smoothly but with some friction. Please note on the base I have photographed that for some reason in the distant past someone cleaned the base at least a part of it I don't know why. There is also a very small section of loss through age from wear and rust. This does not in any way ruin this candlestick presentation but adds to the tremendous age and use that the spiral candlestick has had. Thank you again for looking.
