Antique French enamel metal pretty floral violets design time worn chamber candle stick


Shipping to United States: $38.88

A wonderful French enamel candle holder probably from the late nineteenth or early 20th century.
This piece puts one in mind of wee willie winkie and would have been used to light the way up stairs to bed.
The candle holder column sits in a saucer. This design was very practical, as it caught the dripping wax and kept the flame away from the person holding it even when moving around. It also could be safely left lighted at night at the bedside until the candle burned down.
This is a white enamel piece with a very pretty floral design transfer printed on the saucer, I think the flowers are violets.
There is some chipping, rust and aging to the enamel, as shown in the photos, to be expected in a piece which is probably over 100 years old.
Size approx height 5.5cm, diameter across base 14cm, length including handle 18cm.

We are able to post out parcels from Metropolitan France and shipping fees are shown, the customer is responsible for any import duties incurred for an item. Please allow plenty of transit time, as European post is notoriously slow! Please also note that deliveries within France are made to a Pont Relais collection point, there are usually a number of these located in shops and supermarkets in each town, and you will be given the opportunity to specify which one you prefer. Deliveries to other European destinations are generally to your doorstep.

Our items are carefully selected antique and vintage pieces from France and they show the character and charm of years of use. We do not sell new or reproduction items so you can expect to find signs of the age and life that the piece has led. We believe this history adds to the story of an item. Obvious damage and faults will always be mentioned in our descriptions but minor age-related condition issues are not considered a detriment.
