The Corinthian capital of each candlestick retains the original hallmarked detachable push fit sconce.


Each sconce is ornamented with a band of applied bead decoration to the rim.

The lower portion of the base is further embellished with an embossed lobed border.

Condition


These antique candlesticks are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in excellent condition in keeping with age.

Each candlestick has been professionally polished and is in presentation condition.

There is a minor ding to the protruding corner of one capital; this does not detract from the aesthetically pleasing appearance of the piece.

The applied and embossed decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of one base and part hallmarks to the sleeve of each sconce are very clear; the hallmarks to the second base has slight wear in keeping with age, but remains legible.


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