Here is a smaller size 6" high spiral candle holder. The pushup is an old round dowel like piece with a ? wooden spike. The base is painted in a mustard color. At first I thought it was a novelty but I have checked with other dealers who feel that this is genuinely old and once used for small diameter candles. There is some slight surface rust on the spiral. This is a nice unusual piece of early lighting.
