Vintage Brass Gimble Candlestick:
$1


Gimbel brass candlesticks were invented to solve the problem of keeping a candle upright on a tilting sailing ship. No matter in which direction the ship went, back, forward or side to side, the candle would stay in a vertical position due to its cleverly engineered mount which allowed the candle to swivel through 360 degrees. Thus it could be placed on a table or hung by its brass ring (afixed on the side of the saucer base) on the wall and the candle would stay upright and continue burning no matter what the angle of the ship. This utilitarian candlestick was clearly in use in its day and has its original finish, i.e. it has not been polished of refinished. It is 6'' x 4.5" tall.
