Sunday the 29th was the day of our village Brocante (boot sale), and I returned home with just one purchase.
It's a pretty classic early ecclesiastical wooden pricket candlestick. Probably early 18th C, it is part carved and part turned, gessoed, then painted in a rather dull grey/brown colour; most of which has since come off. It reeks of age.
A nice little (50 cms tall) piece that will compliment my collection of early rustic objets. It was probably the oldest thing there!
