A Queen Anne Mahogany Candlestand, with Conical Shaft, Newport, c.1780

This candlestand is a typical Rhode Island, Newport, conical shaft which relates to the nautical aspect these Newport pieces are known for. This candlestand in particular has a very pronounced conical shaft which distinguishes it from many others. It is in perfection condition with an old, probably first surface and has a beautifully developed bracket under the top typical of the fine work these Newport, Rhode Island are known for.
