This Kashmiri candle holder is meticulously hand carved. Heavily patinated, this particular candleholder has some amazingly fine foliate detail featuring flowers and leaves, With a twelve lobed foliate base, a vining stem, a heavily detailed spouted bowl with a serpent handle. A white medium has been worked into the recesses for contrast. It is in excellent condition, Measuring 9" tall, and 4.5" across. Weighing slightly under a pound this is far more solid and substantial than usual for Kashmir copper work from this period. This is estimated to be made in Kashmir 100 to 150 years ago.
