Briglin Pottery candle stick holder

1978 – 1979…cold was it not? Does anyone remember “The Winter of Discontent”? I have this suspicion that these are connected in some way. I could be wrong and these items could be earlier, but I am always trying to dateline items. I thought this might be an oil burner but Nick has some interesting comments – see notes below the photographs.

“By the way the “oil burner” is simply a candle stick. I think it was that shape because of a cancelled order from one of the great London stores for the small “bud vase” that was reused in its leather state to make up the candle stick. Very collectable now that you know!!”

Thanks Nick! – That explains the odd proportions and the base / body not matching visually.
