The waisted capitals are embellished with chased overlapping single scrolling leaf designs to the lower portion and retain the original detachable push fit sconces.
The capitals surmount an exceptional chased double-sided figural bust decorated knop.
The tapering column is encircled with a rounded knop ornamented with a stylised leaf decoration, in addition to a lobed knop to the lower portion.
The antique Spanish candlesticks have circular swept bases encompassed with further leaf ornamentation matching the design to that of the knopped column.
The rim of each candlestick is embellished with the contemporary engraved initials 'AV' in addition to the hallmarks:
Maker's mark: Uralde
Assay master mark: Loizaga (Manuel Loizaga of Bilbao)
Additional mark: city mark*
Each candlestick does not have a weighted base.
These antique candlesticks have been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as .925 standard silver.
* The city mark is a coat of arms displaying the church and San Anton bridge to the left and two interns wolves to the right.
