Unusually shaped dark reddish brown candleholder, hand turned from a very heavy piece of what appears to be mahogany or some kind of ironwood or lignum vitae (can you detect some bet hedging?). The bowl and stem are plain, the base bowl is carved with what could be a rhino and something similar. It is probably a souvenir but a well made one nevertheless. There are one or two very small marks but these mainly seem to be largely natural. It does look to have been stained but it is quite an impressive little piece nonetheless.
