157  (Early Series)    Tall chamberstick.

Does this shape appear in other series?  No - (none recorded in image database)

Earlier examples have a vertically-aligned handle and a straight stem with no waist. Later examples (which are more common) have a waisted stem. The waist was probably to stop the candle slipping too far down into the hollow stem.

Height;  13 - 17 cm


Collection;  Stuart Lawson

Lamp-base version
