Notes : There is an Inscription to one face of the domed. hexagonal base; JACOB NIELS – DOROTHE NIELS – DOTTER – 1656; ‘dotter’ is the Swedish spelling of ‘daughter’; there is a very similar piece at the V&A museum with the accession number M.304-1912 which has been listed as Danish. Normally it is obviously unwise to date an object based on an inscription. but the museum have listed their example as 17th century. so in this instance it is fair to say that the candlestick was produced close to the birth year of Jacob and Dorothe’s daughter.
