Description

The knopped stem of each candelabrum is embellished with further shell decoration to the upper portion.


Each column is further ornamented with a plain circular knop lower portion and surmounts a plain circular sunken well.


These decorative columns surmount square shaped bases embellished with further shell ornamentation to the shaped corners.


Each base bears the contemporary bright cut engraved coat of arms of The King's Hall and College of Brasenose*), above the motto 'Coll De Brasin Nose Oxon'.


These antique silver candlesticks are filled and have green baize to the underside.


* The King's Hall and College of Brasenose (unofficially known as Brasenose College (BNC)) was founded in 1509 and is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford.

The coat of arms incorporates the personal arms of the founders in addition to the See of Lincoln, portraying a rather complex array of heraldry which is often not replicated onto small items and a simplified version is often used. The blazon for the official coat of arms is: Tierced in pale: (1) a chevron sable between three roses gules seeded, barbed (for Smyth); (2) an escutcheon of the arms of the See of Lincoln (gules, two lions of England in pale, on a chief Our Lady crowned seated on a tombstone issuant from the chief, in her dexter arm the Infant Jesus, in her sinister arm a sceptre, all) ensigned with a mitre proper; (3) quarterly, first and fourth, a chevron between three bugle-horns stringed sable; second and third argent, a chevron between three crosses crosslet sable (for Sutton).
