English Petal Base Candlestick

Very fine, early Brass Candlestick.  Seamed construction, double knopped stem, petal base and petaled drip pan at the socket.  The soldered center on the bottom masks the opening where the stem was attached . . . usually by a threaded tang of peened extension.  This is classic construction for candlesticks of this period and this is a particularly fine example of the genre`.
Size is 7 1/2" high.  English, circa 1740.
