canstick (plural cansticks)
- (obsolete) candlestick
a. 1597, Shakespeare, William, Henry IV, Part 1, act 3, scene 1, lines 125–128:
- I had rather hear a brazen canstick turned, / Or a dry wheel grate on the axle-tree, / And that would set my teeth nothing on edge, / Nothing so much as mincing poetry.
