These exceptional antique Victorian English sterling silver candlesticks have been modelled in the form of lyres.
The upper portion of the stringed instrument is surmounted with a swept oval capital, encompassed with concave fluted decoration accented with a reed decorated girdle.
The capitals retain the original detachable hallmarked push fit sconces, each embellished with thread decorated borders to the rim.
The column of each antique silver candlestick features details replicating the opposing scrolling frame and five-strings of the musical instrument.
Each oval swept base is embellished with fluted decoration, accented with further thread decoration to the rim.
These antique candle holders have weighted bases and are fitted with green baize to the underside.
