A candlestick

This candlestick was found by chance in Bartholomew Street, Exeter, in the 1920s. It is made of copper-alloy and can be dated by its style to the late 17th century. Metalwork of this sort was very common throughout Stuart England, but only a few examples have survived, since such vessels could be melted down and their metal re-used.
