ElgaKoster Posted October 28, 2015 Share Posted October 28, 2015 I bought this brass candlestick in Norway at a charity shop, style wise it reminds me of 17th century candlesticks but I don't think this one is a real antique. So I was wondering, anyone know how to date candlesticks? I know so little about how metal items were made...and of course I am planning on making it in mini. If anyone can tell me more about the techniques used in making the different parts that would be great.I really like the base with its seperate drip pan.It has a pricket at the top for a big candle.I unscrewed it to clean it, the bottom edge of the base is folded in on itself. The hex nut is the part that makes me think this is a reproduction or just based on 17th century style as I don't think hex nuts are that old.The screw is set into the bottom of the candlestick with lead.
