Date: Uncertain but most likely mid 19th century.

Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a very nice iron American primitive piece in good condition and worthy of a spot in your collection.
Condition: The candlestick holder is intact with some wear to the surface and rust spots throughout. It is in relatively in good condition with no break, losses, or repairs. The surface has scratches, dings, and rust spots, which can be seen in the photos. The piece has general soiling and some waxy residue to the top collar. The thumb piece at the top is bent, which we are not certain it is the way the piece started. In addition, the motion of the push up mechanism is a bit sticky and not very smooth. The piece has aged to a dark patina. It would make an excellent addition to your antique primitive collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
