This is a vintage antique candlestick and matchbox holder that is estimated to be from the 1920's to 1930's. It is most likely brass material with a very nice vintage patina. It has a long handle with a finger loop on the end. This would have made it easy to pick up and carry once candle was lit. As you can see, there is an opening on the side so the match could be struck without removing the matchbox keeping the candle and matchbox together at all times. I imagine this would be kept at the bedside and even in the dark would be readily available to light your way.
This candle holder measures 2 5/16 inches tall, 4 3/16 inches long (including finger loop), 1 9/16 inches wide. Candle holder is 1 inches deep and 14/16 inch at opening for candle to be inserted. This piece does have aged patina on it and some wax. There is some of a candle down inside the candle holder itself. This vintage antique candlestick and matchbox holder has not been cleaned. The patina is left as it was when it was purchased so buyer can choose to keep the patina if they wish. As with any vintage antique, please review the photos carefully before you buy. Selling for $15.00.
