This is a very beautiful chamberstick, quite exceptional. In violet enamel with gold edging around the candle holder and with the most gorgeous fluted and scalloped design.
It has the expected chipping and rusty edges, especially near the thumb ring, which signal its authenticity and regular use in its former French home.
It photographs beautifully for pretty vintage vignettes too.
Measures approximately 14cm 5.5" diameter.
