This is a small-scale piece of full proportions. All is original, including the finial. Attached are several large candelabra, one of which has the same finial (drop pendant). They usually have rings at the bottom.
Interestingly, this candle holder can accommodate a thick candle or thinner candles. Nevertheless, all the brass is consistent in terms of color and wear. This is a legitimate, early, 18th century small-scale candelabra.
