  Kaba & Pelham Folded Top.JPG - KABA & PELHAM PATENT - Rare folding hook and spike model candlestick; cast brass handle with sheet steel spring plate, hook and thimble assembly and square steel spike; 5 1/4 in. long folded and 8 1/2 in. long unfolded; stamped on the bottom of spring plate KABA & PELHAM COLO SPGS PAT. PEND [The rare Kaba and Pelham folding candlestick is another in a group of desirable Colorado patented candlesticks.  A total of 24 patents were awarded for Colorado miner’s candlesticks, the highest number by far of any state in the US.  Of those patents, at least one example is known for 16 of the patents.  The latest date Colorado patented stick is the Kaba and Pelham.  The patent application was filed by Charles P. Kaba and Harry D. Pelham, both of Colorado Springs, on Nov. 14, 1912.  The patent was awarded as No. 1,069,170 on Aug. 5, 1913.  Pelham’s share of the patent was assigned to Addie G. Slater, also of Colorado Springs.  The spring clip thimble, similar to the Curtiss patent, is different than that shown in the patent drawings.  Otherwise the stick follows the drawing, unlike so many patented sticks.  Around a half-dozen examples of the Kaba & Pelham candlestick are known in private collections.  This example is arguably the finest example known and was formerly in the collection of Dr. Dave Roter of Boulder, CO.  It is thought that the Kaba & Pelham folding sticks were primarily used in the Cripple Creek Mining District whose trade was supplied almost exclusively by Colorado Springs merchants.]
