An unusual plated upright chamber stick or candle holder, with space beneath for a matchbox. The base is lined with a fawn coloured plush. The matchbox shown here is for display purposes only and is not included in the sale.
The space for the matchbox has been lined with cardboard, presumably so that more modern matchboxes could be used. We have not tried to remove this as we are not sure how the cardboard and felt are fixed. The chamber stick is otherwise structurally sound but might benefit from further cleaning.
The chamber stick stands just over 4.25in high and the base measures approximately 3.25in by just over 2.25in. Exact age unknown but believed to date from the middle part of last century. Weighs just over 360g.
