This is an impressive 18th century brass chamberstick, originating from the Low Countries and dating from before 1777.
It has an elegant tulip-shaped socket and the sheet brass is well made with turned decoration.
The wooden handle is nice and smooth and probably made of fruitwood.
The brass is engraved on the underside with "Broeder Thomas", some illegible text, then again "Broeder" and the date 1777. Broeder means Brother in English, which makes it plausible that the chamberstick was used in a monastery.
Condition: Good, as you can see on the photos the chamberstick was well used.
