Description


These fine antique George II sterling silver candlesticks have Corinthian columns to a square shaped domed and swept base, to a plain collet style rim.


The pierced decorated Corinthian capital of each candlestick retains the original hallmarked detachable push fit sconce; the pierced decoration indicates the exceptional quality of these candlesticks.


Each sconce is ornamented with gadroon decoration to the shaped rim.


The shaped bases are embellished with variants of embossed vertical fluted decoration with convex flutes to the upper domed portion and concave to the inverted waisted section.


These Georgian candlesticks do not have weighted bases.


Each candlestick has been crafted by the renowned and collectable London silversmith John Cafe.


Candlesticks crafted in this classical Corinthian style with alternative bases are uncommon and highly desirable.


Date: 1757

The embossed decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the rim of each base are all very clear, in keeping with age.

The hallmarks to the sleeve of each sconce have wear in keeping with location.
