A true matched pair of early American brass push up candlesticks, New England, circa 1820-1830. Each candlestick was made by hand on a lathe. The push up lever is used to raise the candle higher as it burns down lower. It also enables one to pop the spent candle stub out of the candle cup. Each candlestick measures 9.5 inches tall and has a 4.5 inches round base. Both are in excellent condition.
I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
