Now, this is one of the rarest items I've seen on Ebay for a long while. (As mentioned directly below, it has become quite the occasion to find worthwhile items on Ebay.) This is the candlestick candy container from the large set of similarly designed candy containers the Germans made between 1910 and 1920. (The one in my collection is shown on page 105 and is valued between $1,500-1,700. Several others from this set are shown on page 59.) Whomever the buyer was got a stellar deal as the seller hadn't a clue as to the value of the piece based on the BIN price of $75. Congratulations!!
