A very rare pair of fine Regency cut glass two light candelabra incorporating straight cut prisms above a star cut base and below layers of finely cut tiers of glass rings, the whole supporting solid glass arms with faceted cutting, each arm supporting nozzles built up of separate components held by a central silvered and sprung mount terminating in an interior candle tube with conforming sconce, the nozzles with elaborate re-entrant cutting and characteristically designed to carry no drops.
minor chips,
These candelabra are the same pattern as a series of lighting supplied to the 6th Duke of Devonshire in 1831 for use in his London residence, Devonshire House, by the leading manufacturer of chandeliers, W. & H. Perry. They are all characterised by the incorporation of matched prisms, or developments of this concept. Several sets of candelabra were commissioned and at least three chandeliers, one of which hangs in the Yellow Drawing Room at Buscot Park. A pair of candelabra are now at Chatsworth House as well as wall lights of the same pattern.

We have searched extensively for other sets of candelabra in this model but have not found any comparatives offered on the open market, either through dealers or through the sale rooms.
The English Chandelier, Martin Mortimer, colour plates 28, 29, and pages 147 & 148.
