Marked Brass Chamber Candlestick
This chamberstick is made of a reddish brass alloy. It is cast in three parts; the hour-glass shaped handle is riveted to the pan and the socket is connected to the pan by an extremely flat peaned joint. A maker’s mark, CC, is struck on the handle.
An identical chamberstick with the same mark is illustrated in The Lear Collection, where this mark is reported on a late 17th century standish.
