    Although most commentators consider these candlesticks to be English, the defined drip rim on the base of this candlestick compares with German and Netherlandish examples. See Christopher Bangs, The Lear Collection: A Study of Copper-Alloy Socket Candlesticks A.D. 200-1700, London, 1995, pp. 59-60.
