- Extremely rare and found only when a museum or private collector sells their items.
- circa 1680 to 1730
- This particular piece is an impressive 13″ tall with a wonderful burl base.
- Rushes were soaked in oil or fats and secured by the wrought iron pincers before burning; they made a lot of smoke but were used because
candles were so difficult to obtain (not to mention expensive to purchase).
