An unusual decorative item to be illuminated with a tea light candle…
This brass shell is the spent starter cartridge produced by English Electric. This type was used to start Canberra and Hawker Hunter Jets.
It has been carefully drilled around the sides to re-purposes it as a candle holder and looks very effective when lit.
A nice original and historic piece and a great gift idea for anyone interested in aviation history.
The brass has only been lightly polished to help retain it’s authentic patina.
Underneath it is stamped with CART. ELEC. ENG START NO. 10 MK 3 RLB 86/37
Size 18.5cm high, 8cm diameter
