A lovely small George IV period taperstick made in 1829 by Joseph Willmore of Birmingham.
The taperstick is of naturalistic form shaped as a leaf. It is complete with its original detachable snuffer and nozzle. This would have been used with a small taper candle to seal a letter on a desk. A charming decorative piece in excellent condition.
