    Thanks for the idea.I confess that I’ve not tried the Mary Rose museum itself because their candlestick is one of a vast number of individual items they have, but it’s worth a try.
    In the world of candlesticks, mentions in books only say the jury’s out on this question.
    Some candlesticks have been dated from appearances in old paintings.If the painting is definitively dated, it’s a pointer to the date of the objects in it.I’m unaware of any nautical paintings showing this type of candlestick.
