Sterling Silver Shabbat Candlesticks - Vintage George VI (1940)


These exceptional vintage silver Shabbat/Sabbath* candlesticks, in sterling standard, have a baluster shaped form onto a square, incurved shaped base.

The circular rounded capitals are encircled with impressive embossed simplified foliate festoons accented with a central floral motif, all suspended from simple bead designs.

The capitals retain the original hallmarked detachable push fit sconces, with plain moulded borders to the rims.

The capitals are supported by circular, baluster shaped columns featuring further embossed stylised floral and foliate festoons to the central bulbous portion.

The knops to the upper portion of the columns are encircled with embossed scrolling leaf designs.

The incurved shaped bases are surmounted with a large domed portion, ornamented with embossed festoon designs identical to the columns and capitals.

These vintage silver candlesticks do not have weighted bases, and are the largest of their type you could hope to acquire.

* Shabbat is the Hebrew word for Sabbath, which derives from the Hebrew word for rest.
