This is a beautiful brass Georgian Era Chamberstick, ca. 1790. Chamber candlesticks, also known as chambersticks, were unique in that they were designed to be carried to the from the hall bedchamber in the evenings. They feature a flared base to catch the wax and a small handle on the side of the base so that it could be carried comfortably. Chambersticks also have a central socket to hold the candle securely and keep it away from clothing while it was being carried. This chamberstick also features a plunger to move the candle up in the socket and keep it burning. It is a lovely, handcrafted, well-made piece from the Georgian era, and was possibly made in Wales or the United Kingdom.
