First seen in sterling silver just prior to 1690, silver chambersticks became popular during the 18th century, with their popularity remaining until the introduction of electric lamps during the Victorian period. Designed to be carried from room to room, a chamberstick features a handle and removable extinguisher, and were typically used with tallow wax candles rather than bees wax.
