Hi everyone, I recently bought this item at a fair thinking it could be a candlestick, but was suggested it was in fact used in the mid 19th century for spinning cotton thread? If anyone could shed some light on this little curiosity, like what's it's called or it's uses, anything  would be much appreciated. Thanks for your time

It looks like a candle holder to me.  It is a very interesting piece.
