SOLD -- Sterling Silver Taperstick by John Cafe - Antique George II


This fine antique George II cast sterling silver taperstick has a plain classical English form.

The cylindrical capital is encircled with bands of tooled decoration.

The waisted section of the knopped column features a hexafoil shaped knop ornamented with six shell decoration.

This Georgian taper candlestick is supported by a hexafoil shaped base embellished with a shell motif to each convexity.

This taperstick does not have a weighted base.

The taper candlestick has been crafted by the renowned and collectable London silversmith John Cafe.

Date: 1751


This antique taperstick is an exceptional gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The maker’s mark, assay mark and date letter of the full hallmarks struck to the underside of the candlestick are all clear; the lion passant however has been lost in the casting, which is not uncommon.

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


Width of base 8.9cm/3.5"

Diameter of capital 1.6cm/0.6"

Height 12.5cm/4.9"
