Description


These exceptional antique Venetian silver candlesticks have a circular rounded form to a circular spreading base.


The bell shaped capitals of these silver candlesticks are encircled with an applied moulded border below the plain fixed sconces.


The capitals are supported by tapering cylindrical columns embellished with plain applied bands to the upper and lower portions.


The plain waisted knop to the lower portion of each column is encircled with an applied moulded border.


The inverted bell-shaped foot of each candlestick is plain and unembellished.


Each candlestick does not have a weighted base.


These Italian silver candlesticks bear the Venetian Assay Office (Zecca) mark (St.Mark lion in "moleca"), in addition to two other unidentified marks*.


*Venetian silversmiths scarcely followed the rules and applied the Italian hallmarks of this period, no item with all five marks is known; most pieces will include two marks, typically the assayer and the Zecca mark.

Condition


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

There is a slight ding to the base of one candlestick; this does not affect the aesthetically pleasing appearance or integrity of the piece.

The hallmarks struck to the collet rim of each base and surface of each sconce have wear in keeping with age and location.


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