OVERVIEW

This beautiful brass chamberstick/candle sconce was made by Virginia Metalcrafters in Waynesboro, Virginia. The company began in 1890 and started making brass items in 1938. Their cast brass items are highly respected; they made authorized replicas for the Smithsonian and also Colonial Williamsburg, who commissioned this piece. It's a faithful copy of one in their collection. The formula VM used for the brass produced a heavy, golden brass and they used hand-carved molds. Every piece was hand finished. Sadly, the company is no longer in business.

The oval base of this candleholder has a candle tube 2 inches high that is decorated with tiny punched circles around the top and on each side of a vertical opening that enables you to remove a burned-down candle stub. The tube is attached to the base with three brass tabs underneath. The tab on the back has a hole for hanging that is surrounded by the same tiny circles and there are six stars below that. The tab is attached to the base with 2 copper rivets.

The sconce is 6 1/4 inches tall to the top of oval back tab, 7 1/4 inches across at the widest point of the saucer base and 5 1/4 inches front to back. It's in terrific condition, ready to hang on the wall or sit on a table or shelf. Wherever you place this chamberstick, it will add charm with its warm brass glow.
