Detailed Description

A Very Rare late 16th Century Brass Candlestick; Spanish x. 1580; the ‘Moorish’ influence in the design is clear, particularly the twelve pointed drip pan which is based on earlier Islamic examples; the number twelve is of particular significance in the Islamic religion and is generally taken to represent the twelve Imams (successors) of Mohammed.
