The candle holder, or Chamberstick, was meant to light its owner's way to their bedroom in the days before electricity or perhaps allow for some late night reading before slumber takes hold. Placed on a side table or held aloft in the night like a scene out of Dickens, this hand-forged iron Chamberstick is practical and attractive. Measuring 4" in diameter at its base with a nicely angled handle, it holds a 1" diameter candle and is perfectly suited for power outages or reading a favorite poetry volume by a more natural, inspiring kind of light. Candles sold separately. Either of our beeswax candles work, see below for details.
