Description: This is a rare paint decorated and deep New England Shaker push up tin or sheet metal chamber stick circa 1800s. The Shaker chamber stick is appropriately called a "Sponge Cake Pan Chamber Stick" due to the deep well wax reservoir and the long candle holder release. The Shaker sponge cake chamber stick was paint decorated and has an old paint worn patina. There is also a holder for a small candle snuffer but the snuffer has gone missing. The Shaker sponge cake chamber stick has a push up lever that slides the candle up and down inside the candle holder.
Condition Report: Excellent condition with an age appropriate patina.
Dimensions: 7 1/2 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches high
