Description


This magnificent pair of antique George III cast sterling silver candlesticks has a baluster shaped form with a waisted knopped stem onto a shaped base, crafted in the Rococo style.


The waisted stem is encircled with impressive leaf and scroll decoration to the shoulders accented with a lobed design to the lower knop.


The baluster shaped capitals are embellished with impressive layered graduating shell designs and are fitted with the original fully hallmarked detachable sconces.


The sconces are encircled with scroll decorated rims, accented with four stylised leaf motifs.


The surface of each scone is embellished with a contemporary bright cut engraved crest depicting a double-headed eagle, its wings displayed uplifted.


The base of each candlestick has a quatrefoil shaped sunken well encompassed by further fine and impressive leaf and scroll detail, in the same design as the upper knop.


The surface of one lobe of the well of each candlestick is ornamented with the identical crest to that of the sconce.


Each base is encircled with scroll decoration to the shaped rim incorporating large scrolling leaf designs.


These candlesticks were crafted by the renowned and important London silversmith Paul Storr.


Date: 1813

Condition


These antique candlesticks are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The cast decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the rim of each base, and part hallmarks to the sleeve of each sconce are all very clear; the second portion of the maker's mark to one sconce sleeve is partially worn but remains legible.

The hallmarks are struck deeply and sharply due to the exceptional gauge of silver.


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


Dimensions


Height to top of sconce 30.2cm/11.9"

Width of sconce 7.4cm/2.9"

Width of base 15cm/5.9"
