This lovely middle to late 1800’s cast and chased brass (or bronze) candlestick was converted to a lamp in the 1920’s and retains a working colored flame bulb of that period. Measuring 10” tall (4 ½” tall to top of brass) x 4 ¾” square it features a full round Chinese dragon whose tail forms the handle and whose head supports the candle socket. The beast stands on a base with pierced gallery and surface ornamented to resemble an oriental rug or exotic tile work. The underside shows traces of old fire gilding and the base was drilled in one place to accommodate the cord as was the bottom of the brass candle socket. I don’t believe the rest of the metal work was compromised in wiring.
