Description


These exceptional antique George III sterling silver candlesticks have a circular shaped form to a knopped tapering column onto a circular spreading stepped base.


The circular urn style capitals and tapering columns are embellished with vertical bands of pendant husk decoration.


Each column is further ornamented with an interlacement band to the upper portion accented with three applied and embossed ram’s head designs connected with a simplified suspended festoon.


The original hallmarked detachable sconces are encircled with a single interlacement band to the rim.


The base of each is embellished with three urn designs, each with fluted decoration and rams head handles in addition to a three single leaf motifs and further interlacement bands to the upper and lower portions.


Both candlesticks have weighted bases, as to be expected, and are fitted with green baize to the underside.


These impressive Georgian candlesticks have been crafted in a rare style and were struck with hallmarks within the first year the Sheffield assay office was opened.


Date: 1773

Condition


These antique candlesticks are a very good gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The candlesticks have some surface blemishes and minor dings to the bases, as expected with such original candlesticks from this period.

The decoration to each candlestick is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the rim of each base and part hallmarks to each sconce are all very clear considering their location; the maker’s marks to the bases are rubbed but remain legible.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these examples of Georgian silverware.
