There are minor blemishes to each candlestick as to be expected in keeping with age; this does not detract from the aesthetic appearance of this fine pair of candlesticks.
Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each candlestick and part hallmarks to the sleeve of each sconce are all very clear; the hallmarks to each candlestick are slightly worn in keeping with age.
Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these fine examples of Georgian silverware.
