Amazing Antique Holland Delft Lion Candlestick made by a company that began in 1632 'De Oude Moriaan's Hooft' = 'The Old Moor's Head' as described in Kovel's book "Dictionary of Marks- Pottery and Porcelain" page 5 mark C where it shows two marks for this company. I also did research on the internet for ' The Old Moor's Head' mark and they show it under Holland # 40.. Love the Lion's face.. Measures 8" high x 6 " wide x 4" wide at base. It has had restoration where candle plate atttaches to Lion and some tiny rubs on glaze.. Now very secure and restorred well.. Approximately over 300 years old.. & he is still some fierce Lion... very heavy-weight about 2 LBs because of heavy dense ceramic and heavy glaze...
