Cheap as chips
This post is just to cheer John up. More candlesticks.
Yes, just when you thought I had shut up about candlesticks, up I pop with this rather elaborate little taper stick holder in wrought iron. It is about a foot wide.
I was sold it as 17th century (well, the ignoramus called it 16th century AND Cromwellian, so I suppose he made the usual mistake).
I've sent this photo to one of the world's leading experts for his opinion. That's the good thing about having a strange name and specialising in obscure things - you don't normally have to be secretive about your email address.
