Favourite Item
A rare survival from the last quarter of the 16thc is this fine example of an early Candlestick known as a Heemskerk...made in two parts out of Brass, double teardrop knops with a wide central drip-tray, it has two holes in the socket for ejecting the candle and is beautifully turned underneath the base.

Dutch. C1560-80.
One ejector hole is worn larger than the other through years of use...as you would expect of a candlestick this age....see images.
Private collection.
