Description


This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver taperstick/taper candlestick has a tapering cut-cornered triangular form with a shaped column.


The cylindrical capital of this antique 19th century silver taperstick is encircled with applied moulded girdles and surmounts a plain circular drip pan.


The exceptional cast sterling silver column has been modelled in the form of a wyvern in a broad stance.


The column is ornamented with details replicating the wyvern's scales and anatomical features, including a spiralling tail and extended wings.


This impressive figural column surmounts a plateaued base ornamented with a matte texture to the upper surface.


This 19th century silver taperstick does not have a weighted base.


* A wyvern (otherwise known as a wivern) is a legendary dragon that has two legs. This creature is popular within European literature, mythology and folklore, in addition to heraldry.
