Condition


These antique sterling silver candlesticks are an exceptional gauge of silver, exeptional quality and in excellent condition.

The decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck individually to each corner of the underside of the rim of each candlestick are very clear; one maker's mark is poorly struck.

The lion passant mark to the capitals are worn, in keeping with age.
