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.
