Candlelight dominated the 18th century, particularly within the salons of the nobility. Brass was one of the widely-used alloys for Spanish candlesticks. One of the leading lots in the upcoming March Estate auction, to be presented by Leland Little, is a set of eight Spanish brass candlesticks. These items have screws on their bases with stylized paw feet. The tallest candlestick measures 12 inches high. This lot belongs to the Estate of the Late Phyllis J. Prather, owner of The Brass Lantern in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Another featured 18th-century lot is an English Chippendale mahogany chest of drawers. Designed with an applied molded edge, this piece has two side-by-side and three graduated drawers, all with applied cockbeading. The auction will also showcase a painting based on British landscape artist Samuel Scott’s Old London Bridge. This oil on copper work is presented with a period brass frame.
