Large Bronze Heemskerk Mid Drip Candlestick, 16th - 17th C Nr Untouched:
This is a massive bronze candlestick. Has a very pleasing and old patina on it. This item has not been polished in decades.
The base is tight to the lower stem. The uppers stem is loose to the lower stem. If you look in the pictures you can see that the thread is worn on the upper stem. I am not certain about the drip pan, whether this may be an old replacement. It is a much thinner gauge then the rest of the candlestick which makes me doubt it. At any rate, because of that, this is an fabulous opportunity to own a very desirable massive bronze early 17th century candlestick that are typically listed here on starting at one thousand dollars. Mine is much less than that and comes with all of its patina and life.
I am certain that you will love this item. A little TLC to tighten the upper to lower stem and good to go. This item feels more like a cannon then it does candlestick :-)
Comes in at a very impressive 17 inches.
