A superbly patinated bell shaped base spiral candlestick.

The beechwood base has developed a fabulous finish. Note the lovely turning marks to the underside of the base. The lovely original metal work can be seen poking through the base and folded over which would have been done when it wasmade around 1780/90.

These spiral candlesticks are a great design with a carrying hook to avoid wax spilling onto your hands. There is a side travellor which moves the candle up and down  adjusting the height of the candle and also allowing  the ends of the candles to be removed.

It measures 20cm h x 9.6cm w.

An 18th Century Spiral Candlestick

    The word Treen is derived from the word tree and is a term used to describe wooden household objects, all turned from one piece of wood e.g. a bowl, plate, gingerbread mould, and spoons, always having a function.

    Nowadays when we talk about Antique Treen it tends to cover all small wooden items including antique snuff boxes, candle stands, spice towers, etc. often made from several pieces of turned wood.


    When a piece of wood has been painstakingly turned or carved, handled, polished and loved over a few hundred years old, it can develop a wonderful colour and patina and becomes an irresistible piece of Antique Treen.
