Tall and beautiful, the Push-Up Candlesticks are an original design. There is a brass rod which is attached to a platform within the socket. The rod extends down through the shaft and through the underside of the base. There a small brass knob is threaded to the rod. Atop the platform is a nickel which has been soldered in place.

I sometimes refer to these “sticks” as my Jefferson Ejectors. The push-up feature is used in those instances when the candle burns low and into the socket. The candle stub can easily be pushed out without enlisting the aid of a kitchen knife!  Try to avoid letting candles burn this low as the pewter can become damaged.
