The candelabra were originally colza oil lamps, with an oil reservoir within each urn, positioned slightly above the lamps in order to feed them by gravity. The lamps have now been electrified. The design is inspired by the ‘Antique’ and taken from a drawing by George Smith. The glass shades are of later date.

Related twin light candelabra are illustrated in Norman Adams’s 1995 catalogue.

William Collins was one of the leading manufacturers of 19th century cast brass lighting devices. He supplied the royal household and much of England’s nobility with fine candelabra and lamps.

Similar candelabra can be seen in a watercolour of the staircase at Buckingham Palace by W. H. Pyne.

An identical candelabra base was photographed by Country Life in 1939 at Badminton House in Gloucestershire, where Queen Mary stayed during the Second World War.

Another identical candelabra base with slightly different lamp top was photographed by Country Life between circa 1910 and 1915 at No. 20, St. James’s Square in London.
