Silver Corinthian Column Candlesticks Victorian

Sterling Silver Corinthian Column Candlesticks - Antique Victorian

An exceptional, fine and impressive pair of antique Victorian English sterling silver Corinthian column candlesticks; part of our ornamental silverware collection

SKU A7650


These exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver candlesticks have Corinthian columns to a square stepped base to a collet style rim.

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

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

The classic Corinthian column of each candlestick is entwined with an embossed vine design; this additional ornamentation to the fluted column is highly desirable.

The columns surmount impressive stepped bases, ornamented with further bands of impressive bead ornamentation above the collet style rims.

Both Victorian candlesticks have weighted bases, as to be expected, and are fitted with green baize to the underside.

Maker: Mark Willis

Date: 1897

These antique silver candlesticks are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

There are a few minor blemishes as to be expected to original candlesticks of this type.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the rim of each base, in addition to part hallmarks to each sconce are all very clear.

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

Width of base 12.7cm/5" square

Width of sconce 7.5cm/3"
