Antique Varney Miner's Folding Candlestick For Sale

Perhaps one of the rarest and most valuable of all folding miner's candlesticks, this is a very fine specimen that appears to be nearly perfect. It was the property of my wife's grandfather who was a noted underground copper and gold mine owner and operator in Montana circa 1910 to 1930. With the final destruction of the old family house, an attic cleanout yielded a box of his unique mining antiques preserved in near new condition. This item has been in storage for at least 80 years. I am not an expert on these matters and this is the only one of its kind I have seen. My only knowledge comes from Pohs book on Mine Lights and from internet sites.

These pictures were taken with extreme care to show detail and quality. Some are so sharp that reflections require closer scrutiny. The piece has been professionally cleaned and lightly polished by a jeweler.There is a small defect a few inches back from the point (picture #2), and the fine marks caused from several openings and closings. I couldn't get the scratches to show in the pictures.

THIS IS A RARE AND EXCITING FIND AND WOULD ENHANCE EVEN THE MOST DISTINGUISHED COLLECTION!

I have seen this same item has been sold for over $23,000 at sale. So that it arrives safely and quickly, Seller (me) will pay for UPS overnight shipping plus insurance for full sales price.

I will also include a full size 7 page reproduction of the candlestick's Patent to be shipped by regular mail. Thanks for viewing and good luck to you buyers.

Immediate payment using PayPal is requested! I will ship within two business days from the receipt of full payment.
