Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The circular capitals have fixed sconces encircled with embossed convex fluted decoration.
The lower portion of the impressive Corinthian columns are encompassed with a spreading knop ornamented with embossed fluted decoration in a swirl design.
Each octagonal swept base is embellished with further decoration identical to that of the knop.
These antique candlesticks do not have weighted bases; this style of candlestick often has a square cut cornered base, these candlesticks feature a desirable octagonal shaped base.
These exceptional examples of 17th century silverware have fine colour and patination*.
Such original period candlesticks, in this condition, are becoming increasingly difficult to locate.
* Patination or Patina is a subtle colouration or tarnish which forms on the surface of some metals, produced by oxidation or other chemical processes. A good patina proffers an aesthetically pleasing look.
NOTE: After surviving the Great Fire of London the records at the London Assay office were destroyed by fire in 1681; their catalogues and documentation began again in 1697. The London Assay Office have continued the efforts to further locate 16th and 17th century silversmiths, and it has been determined that there is a possibility the maker is Daniel Beverly, a freeman of the Haberdashers who became part of the Goldsmiths Company in 1672.
