N7996 Rare Important Dominick & Haff Candle Holder
A most unusual and rare antique sterling arts and crafts candle holder by Dominick and Haff of New York dated 1881. Entirely hand hammered from the feet up with a heart shaped platform with ruffled edge measuring 12 1/2" tall and terminating in a comical two sided head with pony tail.
The candle is held in position with a flat bar which has a spring pushing against the candle from the rear in a ring extended from an arm and resting on the base. A large sterling arts and crafts example weighing 23.25 troy ounces making it the largest and most substantial piece of Dominick & Haff in this hand hammered series we have ever seen in 40 years.
