Hammered Iron Goberg Chamberstick w/Matchbox Holder, Signed, Ca. 1910 - image 1 of 12

This is a nice example of a signed Goberg chamberstick, or single candlestick, with a handle. It is designed to be carried from location to location. Typical of Goberg's work this piece shows the hand hammered designs and texture for which he is so well known. It is made with very heavy gauge iron indicating that it is his earlier work. Overall the piece is in wonderful antique condition. This piece was originally varnished. Most of the surface now has a dark gray layer of oxidation which has a wonderful soft patina. The metalwork is solid with no loose parts. It sits flat and looks great on a table. The piece is signed "Germany". The total height is about 7 ½ inches and the circular base is about 5 ½ inches in diameter. Attached to the base there is a dimpled matchbox holder. It is a very nice example of Goberg’s work, it shows well, and is ready for your next power outage. Rest assured that wherever you put this beautiful chamberstick with a candle in place it is bound to draw many great looks and comments.

Known primarily for his hammered iron pieces, Goberg (Hugo Berger) is best known for his wide-ranging variety of candlesticks. Besides being considered a metal fabricator of the Arts & Crafts era, Goberg is also closely associated with the German Jugendstil or Secessionist movement of the same time frame. Much of his work was sold at Liberty of London with an occasional piece finding its way to the U.S.
