This fine antique William IV sterling silver taper chamber candlestick (chamberstick) has a naturalistic lily pad shaped form onto a plain collet style base.

The lily pad leaf wax pan of the chamberstick is fitted with a spiralling stem/peduncle forming a loop handle and terminating with an integrated floral receptacle capital.

The chamberstick is embellished with chased decoration reproducing the naturalistic textures of the stem and leaf.

The chamber candlestick retains the original detachable hallmarked octofoil petal shaped sconce and the original detachable hallmarked snuffer.

The snuffer has a conical form and is surmounted by simplified urn style finial.

This style of chamberstick is traditionally mounted to the centre of an inkstand.
