This is a very fabulous antique heavy ormolu brass chamberstick dating to the late Victorian period - but looking back to Baroque designs for inspiration.

With its exuberent decoration and design - it is probably Continental, rather than British in origin.

It is decorated with profuse floral decorations - which includes insects including bees, butterflies, dragonflies and intricate scrolls.

The chamberstick carrying handle decorated with shells, and at one end is a grotesque mask head.

There are four lion feet surmounted with masks on the base.

On the scone is the head of a female goddess.

It comes complete with its original case snuffer - which takes the form of a small gryphon or grotesque devil figure - complete with pointed tail.

Dimensions: 11 inches overall length. Diameter is 6 ¼ inches. Height (not including snuffer) is about 4 inches.

The snuffer is 3 inches in height.

The handle has a length of 5 inches.

This is a really beautiful item which is reflected in my asking price - it is in gorgeous antique condition with no issues or repairs.

This is certainly a very hard to find and special piece - which is reflected in my asking price.

PLEASE ASK FOR A POSTAGE QUOTE OUTSIDE OF THE UK.
