Rare and Unique Paint Decorated Tilt-top Candlestand

Pennsylvania, ca. 1770. Paint decoration 19th c.
Walnut, polychrome paint decoration
Condition: The candlestand is in fine condition, minor losses to some of the paint decoration on the top.

Very seldomly do we see the incorporation of two periods coming together as one work of art. The candlestand is very successful for its proportions, although a fairly standard form in the 18th c. the design and execution of the painted surface done in the 19th c. is quite spectacular. Perhaps created by a sign maker, this accomplised artist chose a utilitarian piece of furniture as his canvas. The merging of these two artisans have collectively elevated this piece to a remarkable work of art.
