Massive Early Flemish Candlesticks

Massive Early Flemish Candlesticks

Ronald Michaelis, in “Old Domestic Base-Metal Candlesticks”, shows a single example of this form and, after lengthy discussion, dates it early to mid-16th century. The same single stick is published again by John Caspall in “Making Fire and Light” and dated 1520-80. This pair is exceptional, not only for still existing as a pair, but for being almost twice the size of the single published example.
