Arts and Crafts Candlestick In The Manner of WAS Benson-Piece of the Week

Copper and Brass Arts and Crafts Candlestick. 
In the manner of WAS Benson.
This is a fantastic piece of design.
Reflect back to a time before electricity when a candlestick could be knocked over, so this design is counter-balanced with the round ball weight that is part of the design.
It was also designed to be carried in the hand and placed down safely.
10cm high by 24cm long
It is in overall good condition for its age.
 It has a few knocks but I would want to see this as it has been used. It would benefit from a bit of a polish. 
This is possibly a design by........ 
Carl Deffner was born 13 Oct 1856 in Esslingen. On 11 June 1892 he married Charlotte (Lolo) Schoenleber. Records show only one son for Carl and his wife, Karl "Max" Deffner (1900-1985) who was an engineer.   Deffner died in 1948.
