Recent Find: Antique Federal Style Candlestand

Over the weekend I was on the hunt for a sofa. I took a drive up the shore popping into stores in Salem, Essex and Manchester. I picked up this table at The Stock Exchange, a consignment shop known for it’s quality wares.

The table reminded me of a candlestand I’ve been eyeing at Linda Rosen Antiques. My table has the same basic lines, the top looks like maple but I think it’s been recently stripped and has very little varnish. I thought it was worth a try for $125. For now it’s going along my bedside but I’m sure it will come in handy next to a chair or sofa in the future.

  1. Very nice! I’ve been obsessively reading about the antiques business because someone left a new book about it at my house. “Killer Stuff and Tons of Money” — totally entertaining — I couldn’t put it down, about dealers, fakes, finds, Brimfield, and other shows. I’m promised a detour to Brimfield this weekend, where I’ve never been.
