This pair of yew wood Brighton Bun travelling candlesticks are uncommon in that one half makes a watch stand.

The idea of giving one of the halves of the bun a complimentary use to the candlestick does make a lot of sense. We have had a pair before where one half formed an inkwell. The use of yew wood is also unusual with most treen travelling candlesticks made of olive wood or occasionally mahogany. An interesting variant. Late 19th century.
