This candleholder was meant to be carried around the house at night, lighting the way down dark hallways. The loose bouquets are painted in the style of the Cotton Stem painter, a Derby artist whose name hasn’t been discovered yet. The base is molded with scrolls and shaped into four lobes. The nozzle and drip pan are painted with delicate flowers. Five inches across. This is a form which rarely survives intact. In this example the nozzle has been glued back together, there are four small chips on the rim, and the flower thumb rest on the handle is repainted, so it has been restored to some degree. Traces of the original gilding on the rim remain. Unmarked, but the shape is certainly Derby.
