Condition


This antique chamberstick is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The chased decoration is very sharp and the bright cut engraved crests are very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the wax pan and sleeve of the sconce are all very clear.

The full hallmarks to the surface of the snuffer are rubbed but remain legible.


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