Flemish candlestick



Excellent Flemish (North West Europe) copper alloy candlestick. Superb form and excellent condition (considering it’s 500 years old!).

 

In the nozzle of this candlestick is a small chunk of iron which underlines the crudeness of the smelting process of the time.
Note that the finish turning (that cleans off the sand cast roughness) shaped the iron as well. Inventory# R16374
