Smith & Co American Pewter Baluster Stem Candlestick Holder, 1842-1849
Standing approximately 6-3/4" tall, this marked baluster form candlestick holder is of very pleasing design. With
removeable bobeche, this holder is in excellent condition.
Smith & Co. operated out of Boston and, as far as lighting is concerned, made lamps as well as candleholders. The
base and part of the lower shaft match other known Smith & Co. lamps. The base is well struck with the curved Smith
& Co mark. The firm was part of a series of partnerships in the 1841-1864 period, including Smith, Ober & Co., and
Morey & Smith.
