This exceptional antique George III cast sterling silver taperstick has a circular rounded form with a shaped figural column.

The cylindrical capital of this cast silver taperstick is encircled with moulded girdles, in addition to a bead decorated border to the rim.

The capital surmounts a circular drip pan, ornamented with further bead ornamentation.

The exceptional cast sterling silver column has been modelled in the form of a Harlequin*.

This impressive figural column surmounts a domed circular shaped base ornamented with scrolling leaf ornamentation.

This taperstick does not have a weighted base.

This impressive Georgian taper candlestick was crafted by the renowned London silversmith William Cafe.

* An antique Harlequin takes the form of a monkey/masked character dressed in a diamond patterned costume. 'Harlequin' is a well-known Zanni character type from the Italian Commedia dell'arte and his role was to be a light-hearted, nimble and astute servant.
