Hanging Spiked Candle-Holder/Dryer with Rich Cluster of Authentic Period Candles

New England, ca. 1780-1810. Pine-body, with strong patina and readily visible tool marks. Retains original whittled or spokeshaved spikes which radiate upward and outward to suspend candles from their wicks, staggered to allow candles to hang without obstruction. Functioned to dry candles after making and/or as a holder for the precious hand-made candles. The candles are each a little treasure, with rich patina. A similar example is at Nina Fletcher Little's Cogswell's Grant. About 18 inches tall from the top of the holder to the bottom of the candles. Spikes extend as much as 5 1/2 inches.
