The main body is of the rare "frying pan" form, with a raised reeded edge. The baluster shaped central section rises to a capital with everted edge and reeded rim. The beautiful handle is of typical 1730's/1740's design, with the stylised fleur-de-lys decoration. The whole piece stands on a circular ring foot and is of an excellent gauge. The well of the main body is well marked with GED, for Dougal Ged. This piece is only marked with the maker's mark of GED, as it most probably went straight to the customer from his workshops. Chambersticks from Scotland are extremely rare and very few are known to exist from this period. A late 17th century pair are contained within the collection of the Museums of Scotland.
