A George III Mahogany candle stand.
A candle stick would be placed on the top of the stand. The stand could be adjusted in height with the small side handle which when loosened allows a central wood stick to be pulled up from inside the base. Similar ones illustrated in Pinto.
The thumb screw tightens nicely onto the internal stem which can be raised to a height of approx. 32.5cm.
Stands at 22cm when in lowered position
Base diameter is 14cm
Top diameter is 14cm
