This lovely heirloom quality candlestick in heavy Silver Plate over solid brass measures 6-3/4" high and carries its own snuffer. The silver is treated with an anti-tarnish finish to keep it shining, the base is felted to protect fine finishes. Weight: 1 pound and 3 ounces.
While all silver plated items are
treated with a finish to help prevent tarnishing, please note that
periodic wiping with a soft cloth is still necessary to keep these items
shining. Oxidation, which requires polishing, will occur over time.
The efforts of seventeenth century colonists to approximate the comforts of home with imported luxuries are recalled by the delft pottery, puzzle jugs, and posset pots; brass, silver, and pewter candlesticks, Italian brocatelle and an Ushak, or "Turkey," carpet on the floor. The warmth provided by such imported materials gave the colonists a sense of security and protection in the wilderness.
