Description


These exceptional antique George V silver candlesticks have been crafted in sterling silver, in a tapering square column form.


Each of the 1920s silver candlesticks is fitted with a circular hallmarked push fit sconce, embellished with applied bead decoration to the rim.


The rounded capitals have each been crafted in the shape of an urn, and are embellished with impressive applied festoon ornamentation, suspended from ribbon bow motifs; the lower portion of each capital is further embellished with foliate decoration.


The upper portion of each tapering column is ornamented with a square knop; each side of the knop is embellished with a central applied flower motif, surrounded by vertical panelling.


Each column is accented with four impressive cast applied ram's head designs, positioned directly under the knop on each of the four sides.


The lower portions of the columns are embellished with bow and ribbon motifs, arranged vertically down the length of each side of the columns.


The columns are supported by a cuboid plinth, with angular corners, to an impressive swept three tier base which is ornamented with applied bead decoration to the rim.


The upper tiers of the square base are both ornamented with leaf motifs, spanning each of the four sides.


The lower, incurved portion of the impressive base is embellished with scrolling leaf motifs, extending to each of the four corners; each of the four sides is also decorated with an applied tureen motif.
