Description


These fine antique George II English cast sterling silver candlesticks have a plain shaped capital with a knopped stem onto a sunken well to a shaped incurved base.


Both plain capitals are ornamented with bands of thread and read decoration encircling the upper border.


These fine Georgian candlesticks retain the original detachable push fit sconces with shaped scrolling decoration to the rim.


Each sconce is embellished with a bright cut engraved crest of on a chapeau a griffin passant the wings elevated holding in the dexter claw a sprig of laurel.


The knopped stem is embellished with scrolling shell designs, accented with bands of reed and thread decoration.


The shaped bases of these antique candlesticks are ornamented with unusual shell on a swirl design and scroll decoration.


The bases are not weighted.


Date: 1748

Condition


These antique sterling silver candlesticks are an exceptional gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.

The decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck individually to each corner of the underside of the rim of each candlestick are very clear; one maker’s mark is poorly struck.

The lion passant mark to the capitals are worn, in keeping with age.


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