Wonderful Pair of 19th Century Turned Mahogany Spill Holders

A very pleasing pair of 19th century hand-turned mahogany spill vases, or holders. One would have been placed on each side of the mantel to hold spills, tightly rolled pieces of paper or splinters, that were lit from the fire to light candles, lamps, pipes, etc.

These beautifully turned pieces stand 6 5/8" high and are in very good undamaged condition. They have a soft lustrous finish and lovely warm, mellow patina.

Similar examples of treen spill holders and examples of spills can be found in fig. 116 of 'Treen And Other Wooden Bygones' by Edward H. Pinto.
