Description


This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver taperstick has a circular rounded form with a shaped figural column.


The cylindrical capital of this antique silver taper candlestick is encircled with moulded girdles, in addition to a shaped scalloped chased decorated border to the rim; the capital surmounts a lobed floral petal style drip pan.


The exceptional cast sterling silver column has been modelled in the form of a Harlequin*.


This impressive figural column surmounts a domed circular shaped base ornamented with chased scrolling leaf and floral ornamentation.


This Harlequin taperstick does not have a weighted base.


* An antique Harlequin takes the form of a monkey/masked character dressed in a diamond patterned costume. 'Harlequin' is a well-known Zanni character type from the Italian Commedia dell'arte and his role was to be a light-hearted, nimble and astute servant.
