An early 19th century single candlestick. This simple form is often called a "hogscraper", named after the implement used to scrape the bristles from a hog's back. Normally made of iron, a few were made of brass. This example is brass, with an iron interior bar and push up handle. Basically in good original condition, it has a soldered join at the base of the stem, a few scratches to the surface of the brass near the top, and the circular base is not perfectly flat. Circa 1800
