"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
The candlestick has a hexagonal base, which is flat with shallow sides. Extending from each of six corners are slightly protrusive ribs, which terminate at neck. The center of shaft is incurved, scrolling forward and forming a hexagonal shaped plateau. The stem is hexagonal with straight sides and each side of neck embellished with grid pattern consisting of four vertical rows and three horizontal rows of rectangles. The hexagonal shaped collar has flat, shallow sides and a deep circular-shaped bowl.
CONDITION - Excellent. This candlestick has minor blisters around its base. There are also three scratches on the under side of same base.
