A fine White Brass Candleholder; Choson Dynasty, 19th Century This white brass candle stick is of a slender elegant and simple design which is one of characteristic beauties of Korean art. It is an assemblage of simple geometric forms ---circles, squares and lines--- which are exquisitely balanced one to another. The drip basin with its supporting post is connected to an upper post by a panel with a reversed swastika cut into its open work.

It measures approximately 25¡± high
