A delightful pair of little antique silver taper sticks with stepped bases and shell corners. Cast silver. One with a hand engraved crest. Total weight 290 grams, 9.3 troy ounces. Height 12 cms. Base width 7.4 cm. Marked underneath in four corners with English silver hallmarks for London 1751. Maker John Cafe, known for his candlesticks.
These lovely tapersticks are in very good condition with no damage or restoration. Excellent patina. Each with a full set of clear and matching English silver hallmarks. One has a hand engraved crest (with wear).
Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
Tapersticks, averaging about 5 inches high are miniature table candlesticks used to hold a wax taper. They are rarer than candlesticks and very few exist prior to the Queen Anne period. They usually appear in singles and pairs of tapersticks command a premium price.
