Queen Anne Standing Brass Candle Snuffer and Stand

Regular price $575.00 Sale

 A brass candle snuffer with scissor-like handles and a pointed tip, which is accommodated vertically into the stand. With an octagonal based stand with a shaped handle. There are two holes in the bottom of the stand so that the point on the snuffers can go in either side.

Snuffer stands were made to go with candlesticks, with the bases and the shafts of the candlestick and snuffer being made in the same mold.

Bibliography: For similar shaped examples, see the candle snuffers in Peter, Nancy and Herbert Schiffer, 'The Brass Book: American, English and European, Fifteenth Century through 1850', (Schiffer Publishing Ltd, 1987), p.227, figures A and E. Figure A has a similar octagonal faceted base. Brass snuffers and a stand of a slightly later date but also with an octagonal faceted base are illustrated in J. Seymour Lindsay, 'Iron and Brass Implements of the English House' (Alec Tiranti, London, 1970), Figure 359.
