Pair Antique Georgian Style Silver Plate on Copper Boat Shape Candlesticks B & W
A very attractive pair of antique silver plated candlesticks in the Georgian or Regency style but dating from the Edwardian period - around 1910.
They are marked on the base B & W, which we think relates to Burton and Waters Birmingham silver smiths, they date from the late Victorian to Edwardian period.
The sticks have oval bases and this shape is known as the boat shape. It was very popular during the Georgian period but found favour again in the early 20th century. The candlesticks are a very handsome pair and the bulbous shaped stems are reeded to match the bases. Each has a removable nozzle to catch the drips of candle wax.
The candlesticks are made of silver plate on copper and the plate is a little worn through so that the copper shows, giving an attractive aged effect and commensurate with age and use.
The candlesticks are 9 3/4 inches high and the bases are 5 1/2 inches wide. The bases have their original green felt. Together they weigh 1518g unpacked. They are in good condition with one stick having a little split or hole at the seam where the stem joins the base - see photos.
The candlesticks are most attractive and decorative and they would grace any dining table, side table or mantlepiece.
