Recalling the days when documents were sealed with wax softened in the flame of a candle, this slender hexagonal base taperstick is reproduced from an antique in the Colonial Williamsburg collections. Although 18th-century craftsmen emphasized utility rather than ornamentation, this taperstick is carefully proportioned to please the eye and lacquered to resist tarnish. 4 1/2" H.
Williamsburg by Sedgefield by Adams
Tapersticks were introduced around 1680 and, along with inkwells, quill pens, and other essentials for the writing table, were used throughout the 18th century in the colonies as well as England.
