Catalogue Note

This candlestick is quite rare because it was designed to disassemble into three parts. This may have been done to facilitate cleaning or to make it easier to travel with. For a related candlestick see Christopher Bangs, The Lear Collection: A Study of Copper-Alloy Socket Candlesticks, A.D. 200-1700. (Bethlehem, PA: Oaks Printing Company, 1995), pp. 138, 314, no. 109.
