Love this quirky French brass candlestick or chamberstick shaped like a Phoenix.
It is wry ornately cast with stylalised wings and plumage and the tail becomes a handle. It has a footed (or clawed) stand and an elegant neck.
A quality piece, it is made of solid and heavy brass and is perfectly steady to use with a candle.
I have left the patina of age and use, it would polish if required.
It measures 20cm or 8" long, 9cm or 3.5" to the crest at the top of the head and 9cm or 3.5" across the wings.
