RUSH / CANDLEHOLDER
What a beauty this rush/candleholder is. From England and early 18th Century it has great surface and is in amazingly good condition. It is only 8 1/2" high and is 5 1/2" wide at the feet.
A really great pair of Pricket candleholders found in the Hudson River Valley, NY. They are a matched pair but because they were done by hand they are slightly differing sizes. Used alot as seen by the burn areas to the wood which only adds to the character of the pair. They measure 15" high with the base at 5 1/2" diameter. There is a pair of specially drilled pillar candles to use on them.
HOG SCRAPER CANDLEHOLDERS
The collection of hog scraper candleholders works well as a group but is available singlely. The first is a wedding band with a clinched bottom and a tilted push up and is 6 3/4" high and a base of 3 1/2". All the other ones have bolted bottoms and measure tallest to shortest....8 1/8" high x base of 4 1/4" .....next is 6 1/2" x base of 3 7/8" ......5 1/2" high x base of 3 1/2". The 5 1/2" hogscraper has a hanging hook as does the wedding band. The wedding band one was purchased about 20 years ago at THE YORK GALERY in York, Maine and been in the same collection ever since.
Wedding Band SOLD
