This is a really special and very rare antique Brass Candlestick. It dates from the mid to late 16th Century. Consistent with the age of this candlestick it has its scrapes, knocks and dents including the notch and crevasse on the base as I have tried to clearly show in the photos. However this is quite normal for something of this age and it is the amount of patina created by five centuries of polishing that makes this such an incredibly desirable candlestick. It weighs 380 grammes (13 ozs) and is approx 20cms (just under 8") in height. This is a very tactile piece of brass, it needs holding to be appreciated fully. However, to own this is surely to own a piece of history.
