The sides of the base of the Taperstick are unusually decorated with a band of arch work containing raying shells. Each side is also decorated with Neo Classical drapery swags, tied with ribbons, all above a beaded oval frame with blue bell drapes. The main shaft displays raised spiral bands of blue bell drops. The capital of the column is beautifully decorated with acanthus foliage, beading and blue bell drops. The Taperstick has a plain square detachable nozzle. This example is in excellent condition and is very well marked on the base.

John Parsons was a specialist candlestick maker, with workshops in Sheffield during this period. He had a reputation for quality of design and production and innovative design - a very rare piece, previously unseen.
