- circa 1740 to 1750
- This is an adjustable 7-1/2″ helix-type candlestick that employs a simple handle shown on the left side in photo (also known as a chair back hook because it would be hung on the back of a slatted chair) at the top end.
- A knob at the lower end of the
right side slides along the spiraled opening to raise or lower the candle. The candle holder could also be placed on a table. Ingenious design.
