Brass Heemskerk Candlestick
This robust and stable Heemskerk Candlestick with its distinctly recognizable shape, enjoyed immense favor in the Low Countries as well as England for many years, undergoing minor transitional changes and construction techniques over many years but within certain license which the makers permitted themselves, the Heemskerk forms seldom if ever trespassed outside the shapes of their particular period.  We would date this particular stick to the late 1600's to early 1700's.  It is cast in four pieces and secured by a long spigot which passes through the casting. This particular stick would later transition into a much lighter weight candlestick with a tulip socket, circa 1730-40.
Size is 7-1/2" tall and the condition is very fine.    It is of a nice heavy weight.
