A large beautiful pair of antique silver plate on copper "Old Sheffield Plate" type candlesticks dating from around 1890.
This very decorative pair of Georgian style candlesticks are a good size at 12 1/4 inches or 32 cm. They have decorative floriate design to the base, stem and nozzles. They have a classical shape, typical of the late Georgian period and the base has a diameter of 5 1/2 inches. They are weighted and very heavy at 3.31 kg so no danger of them being easily knocked over! They have green felt table protectors to the weighted bases.
These candlesticks are not actually Old Sheffield Plate but, are electro-plated as they have applied lead floriate moulding which shows through at some of the high points.
The candlesticks have removable nozzles and inside the sconces there is what appears to be a maker's mark - four vertical lines in a row. We have so far, been unable to identify the maker.
They are in very good antique condition with just an old repair to one of the sconces, at the joint, which appears to have fixed the previously detachable nozzle in place. There is a little "bleeding", or wear to the silver plate, revealing the copper base, and some very minor almost imperceptible dints.
This is an impressive pair of candlesticks, highly decorative for display and for use. 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.
