Hello again,
I don't know what this is, but it was pretty enough to buy at a recent estate sale.
At first I thought it was a ring holder, then some type of candleholder......
now I'm clueless.
It's lovely, with very attractive hand painted and gold adornments
Unfortunately there isn't a mark on the bottom,
Any guesses what it might be, or perhaps you know what it is?

Thanks and Happy week to all,

    I think you might be right with the candle idea, Tonino.
    The cover would work well and has the same conical form of a candle snuffer.
    As such a clever piece of early design.
    No marks?

    Kevin & Tony you're both awesome! Thanks for the love
    and Kevin, thanks for the comment, I think you're right about it's use as a candleholder.
    I'll see if I can find anything to compare it to.
    Good night to you Good day

    Budek, please take care in this snow! Might get to use your beautiful candle holder tonight - or the snuffer. We won't forget you, sir. : )
