Rare Candle holder
Candle holder / Canhwyllbren
A very unusual and rare Welsh table top extendable and adjustable candle holder. The underside of the turned sycamore base is counter-weighted with lead and the base is also stamped numerously “J.Owen” who was possibly the maker. The adjustable and extendable candle holder is also made from sycamore with a tin candle socket. The candle holder rises and falls on an ash stem and is held in the desired position by friction and the actual counter-weight of the candle.
Cardiganshire 19th century
Diameter of base 4½” x 22¾” h 11.4cm dia x 57.8cm h
