Benedetto da Rovezzano (1474-d. about 1554)
Church of St Bavon, Ghent, Belgium
One of four candelabra in the church of St Bavon thought to have come from the unfinished tomb of Henry VIII (reigned 1509-47) at Windsor. They are known to have been in the collection of Charles I, and to have been presented to St Bavon by Bishop Anthony Triest who occupied the see from 1622-57. It is therefore likely that they were sold off from the Royal Collection under the Commonwealth in 1649-50.
