Pair of Elkington & Co silver plated candlesticks in the George III style date code 1854 Ripley Crest - Square petalled bases Antique 10 inches high

A beautiful high quality pair of antique Elkington and Co silver plated candlesticks made in the George III style with square ribbed columns, annulated knops and raised stepped square petaled and weighted bases. 

One corner of each of the bases is stamped with the Elkington & Co trademark of a shield with a crowned E & Co, individually stamped Gothic letters E M, for Elkington Mason and co, and the date code letter P in a square standing on its corner. This date code relates to the year 1854 and all of the marks are in a line in the form of faux hallmarks.

The candlesticks each have a lift out sconce or nozzle and have a number stamped on the base of the socket 2756. The central petal on one side of each candlestick base has been engraved with a discreet crest of a top part of a lion holding a shield, which we believe to be that of the Ripley family. Ref 1.  The heraldic description of the crest is a demi-lion rampant regardant, collared, supporting between the paws an escutcheon with chevron. 

These beautiful candlesticks are in very good antique condition with some extremely minor wear to the plate at the high points some minor marks to them commensurate with age and use. Please see the images. Each candlestick measures 4 3/8" ( 11 cm) square x 10" (25.5 cm) tall, the nozzle will take a 7/8 inch (2.1 cm) diameter candlestick. They weigh 1 kg unpacked.

They would make a great addition to any dinner table, mantelpiece or side table. A tremendous pair of antique Elkington and Co silver plated candlesticks in the George III style dating from the early Victorian period.
