Silver Plated Pair Candlesticks Old Sheffield Plate 10 3/4 in. Antique c 1830
A pair of antique silver plated Old Sheffield Plate candlesticks dating from the 1830s - 40s.
Old Sheffield Plate was a method of plating made by fusing silver sheet onto a copper base. This method was superseded by electro-plating around 1840. This very handsome pair of candlesticks stand 10 3/4 inches high and have bases of 5 inches in diameter. They have lead gadrooning and the original green felt table protectors to the weighted bases.
The candlesticks have removable nozzles and have stamped marks inside - a letter V, possibly for John Vickers, and the numbers 6413. Together they weight 2070g - a heavy and good quality pair.
The candlesticks are in very good antique condition with some "bleeding" to the plate showing the copper base which you generally expect to see with items of Old Sheffield Plate. They would made a great addition to any dinner table, mantelpiece or side table.
Please note that as they weigh more than 2 kg we cannot send them to overseas locations by Royal Mail and they would need to go by a courier service instead. Prices given for this are indicative and may vary for remote locations etc. Please message us for a firm price for your location.
