Set of Four Spanish Sterling Silver Candlesticks - French Empire Style - Antique Circa 1830


An exceptional, fine and impressive set of four antique Spanish cast sterling silver candlesticks made in the French Empire style; part of our continental silverware collection

SKU A3910

These exceptional antique Spanish cast sterling silver candlesticks have a circular rounded, waisted knopped, tapering form to a circular spreading base, all in the French Empire style.

The waisted capitals are embellished with chased overlapping single scrolling leaf designs to the lower portion and retain the original detachable push fit sconces.

The capitals surmount an exceptional chased double-sided figural bust decorated knop.

The tapering column is encircled with a rounded knop ornamented with a stylised leaf decoration, in addition to a lobed knop to the lower portion.

The antique Spanish candlesticks have circular swept bases encompassed with further leaf ornamentation matching the design to that of the knopped column.

The rim of each candlestick is embellished with the contemporary engraved initials 'AV' in addition to the hallmarks:

Maker's mark: Uralde

Assay master mark: Loizaga (Manuel Loizaga of Bilbao)

Additional mark: city mark*

Each candlestick does not have a weighted base.

These antique candlesticks have been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as .925 standard silver.

* The city mark is a coat of arms displaying the church and San Anton bridge to the left and two interns wolves to the right.

Maker: Uralde

These antique Spanish candle holders are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The chased decoration is very sharp.

The Spanish hallmarks struck to the surface of each base are all very clear, in keeping with age.

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