This Gothic candleholder was made at the end of the 15th century in Flanders. From the 14th to the 17th centuries, brass and copper candleholders appeared in some homes.
Made of gilded brass, it has a symmetrical shaft made up of three knots resting on a large pedestal topped by a circular terrace serving as a bobbin for collecting wax.
At the level of the socket, two vertical openings facilitate the extraction of the burnt heel of the candle. Later, with the sophistication of candle production, these openings will eventually disappear.
The shape of the stem and base of the candlesticks at this time is the result of various influences, such as the Middle Eastern designs with a cylindrical or slightly conical high base or the European designs with peg candlesticks, whose stem is supported by three legs.
