When it comes to candlesticks, this one is the reigning monarch.  It deserves this recognition simply because it was the first candlestick ever produced in the American line.  Being the first-born, this item was simply named “Candle”.  No further description was necessary – because at the time, this was the only candlestick available.  Some folks [...]
