Replica of a medieval candle holder. The original was made in Germany in the 13th century. The motive is a warrior which opens and sits inside the muzzle of a dragon. The warrior wears a conical nasal helmet with a mail aventail and probably a chain mail shirt as well. We therefor assume it is high-medieval.
Possibly it is referring to the Nibelungen saga (warrior=Siegfried?) and/or to another dragon slayer e.g. the holy George.
A beautiful candle stick casted from solid brass, though partially hollow from inside.
The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
