Paint Decorated Tilt-Top Candlestand- Price Upon Request
Rare and unique paint decorated tilt-top candlestand, Pennsylvania, ca. 1770, in fine condition, measuring 27 inches high by 18 inches, with 17½-inch-diameter top. Very seldom do we see the incorporation of two periods coming together as one work of art. The candlestand is very successful for its proportions, although a fairly standard form in the Eighteenth Century, the design and execution of the painted surface done in the Nineteenth Century is quite spectacular. Perhaps created by a sign maker, this accomplished artist chose a utilitarian piece of furniture as his canvas. The merging of these two artisans has collectively elevated this piece to a remarkable work of art.
