Description


These exceptional antique George V English sterling silver candlesticks have been modelled in the form lyre.


The upper portion of the stringed instrument is surmounted with a swept oval capital, encompassed with embossed concave batwing decoration.


The capitals retain the original detachable hallmarked push fit sconces, each embellished with thread decorated borders to the rim.


The column of each candlestick features details replicating the opposing scrolling frame and five-strings of the musical instrument.


Each oval swept base is embellished with fluted batwing decoration, accented with further thread decoration to the rim.


These antique candlesticks have weighted bases and retain the original hallmarked silver lined underside; these solid sterling silver undersides indicate the high quality of the pieces.


Such large candlesticks, modelled in the form of lyre, are becoming increasingly difficult to locate.
