This is another rare find from my collection. This 'safety' chamber stick allowed for it to be walked around the house without the candle blowing out. The base is sprung loaded forcing the candle to push up as it burns. It comes complete with its original chimney glass and top-pierced brass ring fitting. It dates to the late 1800s.
