The Shakers are famous for innovation, and this candle holder design demonstrates their ingenuity. As the candle burns down, ratchet the holder up to keep the candlelight at the level needed. Even if you don't read or sew by candlelight, this would be a one-of-a-kind addition to your home décor and a nod to a fascinating subculture in our nation's history. Entirely handmade with Adirondack cherry and pegged with walnut. Several pegged mortises make up the majority of the joinery on the candle holder. Base measures 5" x 7". Candle holder is 27" high at lowest ratchet position and 40 ½" at highest ratchet position.
