Title: Nuremberg Candlestick, Conical Center Low Broad Base
Date/Period: 16th Century - SOLD


Nuremberg Candlestick, Conical Center Low Broad Base, entire view 1

Measurement: Height: 9"; base diameter: 5.625"

Material: Copper Alloy

Condition: The beautiful, lightly cast brass candlestick has, as is usually seen, some
tight cracking of the vulnerable mid to upper base due to thinness of casting. Fissures
long ago repaired from underside. Displays well.

Additional Information: German, Nuremberg, 16th century candlestick; socket, without
aperture, above a tapered corrugated baluster shaft between discoid knops, on a
shallow circular base. These Nuremberg candlesticks are among the finest brass work
of their time. Nuremberg was a major center of metalwork in the sixteenth century.
The very subtle differences between this candlestick and the one published in Bangs
book [see below] elevate this candlestick to superior design.

Note: A similar candlestick example is published within The Lear Collection: A Study of
Copper-Alloy Socket Candlesticks, A.D. 200-1700
by Christopher Bangs, 1995,
pages 106 and 273, No. 75.

Rare base metal socket candlestick; cast and turned shaft peened under the cast and turned, domed and dished base which was strengthened during working life with solder.
