Michaelis, Ronald F.
Old Domestic Base-Metal Candlesticks From the 13th to 19th Century, produced in Bronze, Brass, Paktong and Pewter.

Woodbridge Antique Collectors' Club: 1997. 4th prtg.

For many years candlesticks in the humbler metals did not receive the attention and scholarship that those in silver and gold did. Fortunately that eventually changed, and this fine book was one of the major steps forward in the study of these pieces. A longtime dealer and collector with an impressively logical turn of mind, Michaelis discusses various forms and their development, as well as manufacturing methods.

Hardcover. 8.5"x11", 139 pages, 202 b/w illustrations dj bibliography. Fine condition.
