Matthew Boulton produced various models of candle vases in different sizes; this is one of the largest. The candle arms are unusual for this model, and to date this is the only pair known pair with this type of arm. The usual version is the scroll arm. A pair of candelabra with such scroll arms is in the collection at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire.

The pierced and silvered liners beneath the lid are original, and add to the rarity of the pair.
