We are offering a fine example of a signed Goberg chamberstick, or single candlestick, with a handle designed to be carried from location to location. Typical of Goberg's work this piece shows the hand hammered designs and texture for which he is so well known. It is made with very heavy gauge iron indicating that it is some of his earlier work. Overall the piece is in excellent condition. Goberg used three different types of finishes on his work, black paint, varnish or bare metal. This piece is bare metal. It has some very minor oxidation which is usually expected on old iron work. It also has a wonderful soft semi-gloss patina that covers the whole surface. We have applied a layer of conservator’s wax which will help to preserve the surface over the years and inhibit the development of any unwanted oxidation or rust. The metalwork is sound with no loose parts or joints. It sits flat and looks great on a table. The piece is signed "Germany". The total height is about 7 ½ inches and the circular base is about 5 ½ inches in diameter. In all regards this is one of the nicest chambersticks from Goberg that we have ever run into. Rest assured that wherever you put this beautiful chamberstick with a candle in place it is bound to show well and draw many great looks and comments. It is perfect to have available for your next power outage!
Known primarily for his hammered iron pieces, Goberg (Hugo Berger) is best known for his wide-ranging variety of candlesticks. Besides being considered a metal fabricator of the Arts & Crafts era, Goberg is also closely associated with the German Jugendstil or Secessionist movement of the same time frame. Much of his work was sold at Liberty of London with an occasional piece finding its way to the U.S.
