The Candlesticks are cast and have a wide circuar foot which is decorated with two beaded bands and an unusual band of acanthus spears. The base is also, unusually, engraved with a contemporary shield shaped Armorial, with tied ribbons above. The very unusual waisted columns are decorated with lobing and beading and rise to tulip shaped sockets and a beaded rim. The pull off nozzles are engraved with a contemporary Crest and also have a beaded rim. Both pieces are in excellent condition and are very well marked in the foot and with the maker's mark and sterling mark on the nozzles. The Candlesticks are of a most unusual design and have an excellent colour. The impaled Arms are those of the Farrington family. Silver from the partnership of Robert Jones and John Schofield is scarce, but always of the finest quality. John Schofield was to go on to receive Royal patronage, especially from George IV, when Prince of Wales. Examples of his work are contained within the Royal Collection.

Height: 11 inches, 27.5 cm.
Base Diameter: 5.5 inches, 13.75 cm.
