Simple, Elegant, Rare Hanging Candle Shelf

New England, ca. 1820-1840. Pine, with cut-nail joinery. I love this piece. The design is so simple, yet quietly complex. The rich patina and wear and iron oxide around the nails are all just as the keenest collector would desire. Note the gentle tapering of the back board, and the picture-frame molding applied to the platform.

Has two or three former collection or museum accession numbers.  Condition is superb. About 14 1/4 inches tall; shelf is 6 1/2 inches wide. Depth from wall is 7 inches. Shown in one photo with an early "clenched" iron candlestick, signed on the traveler, which is available with the candle shelf or separately.
