SOLD - Sterling Silver Corinthian Column Candlesticks - Antique Victorian

Description


These fine antique English sterling silver candlesticks have a subtly tapering columnar form.


The impressive Corinthian capital of each candlestick is embellished with a bead decorated upper border and flower medallions to each corner, interconnected via drape swags, and accented with drape style pendants.


Each capital retains the original hallmarked detachable push fit sconce also ornamented with a bead decorated border.


The upper portion of each column is decorated with tied ribbon and husk swag designs, which incorporate the vertical bands of husk decoration which extend the full length of the column, to the circular collet foot.


The corinthian column candlesticks have square swept bases embellished with embossed husk decoration at each junction in addition to a bead decorated border.


The four sides of each base display a central embossed ribbon, husk and flower medallion motif.


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


Date: 1895

Condition


These corinthian column candlesticks are a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

There are minor dings to one column, and the bases, but these are in keeping with age and certainly do not detract from the aesthetic appearance of this fine pair of candlesticks.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each candlestick and the sleeve of each sconce are all very clear.


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