These exceptional antique William III English Britannia silver candlesticks have a cylindrical form onto a spreading square cut cornered base.

The circular capitals have fixed sconces encircled with embossed convex fluted decoration.

The lower portion of the impressive Corinthian columns are encompassed with a spreading knop ornamented with embossed fluted decoration in a swirl design.

Each swept base is embellished with further decoration identical to that of the knop.

The base of each candlestick is not weighted and bears the contemporary engraved initials 'AC' to the underside, in addition to the scratch weight.

Such original period candlesticks often do not stand the test of time and are becoming increasingly difficult to locate in this condition.

Signed/Inscribed
* Britannia Silver - The Britannia silver standard of 958 (95.84% of fine silver), denoted by the icon of the seated Britannia holding an oval shield, was introduced by William III in 1697. This was to indicate the slightly higher standard of silver from sterling silver standard of 925 (92.5% of fine silver). Full Britannia silver hallmarks struck to the underside of each base are very clear.
