The main stem is hexagonal in section, joined above centre in a gilded knop, and flared where it turns to a tapered round spike. The tripod foot is wide and sturdy, and of simple, undecorated form, with slightly out-turned toes, as the original stands were made. The main crown is composed of three individual sections which rest one upon the other, over the spike. The drip trays are of hexagonal and square forms, again as original, and individually shaped free-hand with hammers. The whole structure is carefully proportioned, and is very convincing.
An authentically detailed floor standing candelabrum in the style of the early sixteenth century. It is entirely free-hand forged from old iron, some from early window casements, and riveted with individually made pins. The colour is good, and there is trace gilding to the details, giving a very convincing impression of age. It stands around seven feet tall, and carries twenty four candles, eight on prickets, and sixteen in sockets. This work is sold, but a guide price would be around £2200.
