Made of iron, this antique Japanese mobile candle stand, known as a teshoku, dates from the Edo period. So typical of the old Japanese ethnographic objects, the design of this single candle holder is totally simple and wonderfully functional. With a lighted candle, this candlestand could be easily carried about the house by use of long very gently curved handle. When set in down, the placement of the 3 legs makes it very stable to minimize chances of it being accidentally knocked over. It is the ultimate piece of folk art.

This candlestick holder has aged gracefully, obtaining a softly pitted surface and one small chip on the edge of the candle plate. Circa 1800, it measures 13" long 5 inches high.
