Favourite Item
This fine antique George III Scottish sterling silver chamber candlestick (chamberstick) has a plain circular form.

The rounded border of the sunken well is ornamented with tooled decoration to the rim.

The centre of the plain well is surmounted with a bell shaped capital encircled with an applied girdle in addition to an applied border to the rim.

The chamberstick is fitted with a plain subtly chamfered baluster shaped handle with a bifurcating scrolling lower terminal.

The reverse surface of the handle is embellished with the contemporary engraved initials ‘SH’.

The underside of the plain well bears the original scratch weight; as to be expected the measured weight has subtly diminished in keeping with age to 9.2 troy ounces.

This fine and impressive antique Scottish chamber candlestick has been crafted in an uncommon style.
