Georgian Chamberstick and Snuffer
Candlesticks and candelabra would have been used throughout the house as lighting in every room. They would adorn various places in the house including dining tables during mealtimes, mantlepieces throughout the evenings and bedsides at night. They came in various shapes and sizes and were made from a variety of materials including wood, brass, silver and silver plate.
This is a Georgian old Sheffield plated chamberstick complete with snuff. This would be used to guide the user to bed after extinguishing all the other candles in the house. It would then be placed on the bedside until the person was ready to go to sleep.
It is in good condition for its age.
Dimensions: 11cm wide and 16cm high.
