Description


These exceptional antique Edwardian sterling silver candlesticks have a classical square form to a knopped column onto a stepped swept square foot and square cut cornered base.


The circular urn style capitals are embellished with ribbon and festoons to the upper portion and encircled with simplified single leaves to the lower portion.


The original hallmarked detachable sconces are encircled with two bands of bead decoration to the rim.


Each panel of the tapering column is ornamented with ram’s head decoration accented with suspended swag, ribbon and festoon decoration.


The lower portion of each candlestick is embellished with a bright cut engraved crest of a talbot sejant to one panel.


The knop to the upper portion of the column is embellished with a floral motif amidst vertical pales.


The square foot is embellished with two further bands of simplified leaf designs.


The base is embellished with four urn designs, each with fluted decoration and rams head handles in addition to a single leaf motif to each corner and bead decorated border to the rim.


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


Date: 1905

Condition


These antique candlesticks are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in presentation condition; these candlesticks are the finest gauge and quality of their type whilst being in the original and exceptional condition.

The candlesticks have a few minor blemishes and dings, particularly to the bases, as expected in keeping with age.

The decoration to each is very crisp and the bright cut engraved crest is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the rim of each base and part hallmarks to each sconce are all very clear.


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