Civil War Officer’s brass candle holder, circa 1845 – 1860


Product Description

This is another nice piece being offered, it is a mid-19th century brass, push-up candle holder. It stands 6 1/2” high x 3” at the base. In “Lighting Devices and Accessories” by Stan Hamper, this one is described as a brass “Bee Hive Candlestick, 19th c.” (see pictures). At the bottom of the candlestick is a circular disc that you push to raise and lower the candle.

In my book “The Civil War Soldier – His Personal Items”, I go into detail about the use of candles and candlesticks, and just how important they were for every soldier (see pictures). Being that such items were not issued to Civil War officers, this would be typical of what they brought with them from home. It would make a great addition to any Civil War collection and perfect alongside a letter and pen.
