A rather unusual Single Candle Stick by the renowned German firm WMF. The piece strikes me as being very Germanic in appearance with no traces of Art Nouveau influence at all so we are dating it as earlier than 1895 when WMF started producing their Art Nouveau pieces. The Stick stand twelve inches in height with a maximum width of 2 1/8"...the base is a bit twisted...it has had a bang on base rim...however it 'sits' fine. Quite an elegant piece though the design to me has certain similarities to that of the German Nationalist Party paraphernalia used in the 1920's-1940's.
