An unusual pair of antique sterling silver candle holders with a 6 shell base and detachable sconces. Very attractive design and heavy cast silver. Hand engraved to each foot and nozzle is the crest of a winged animal over a crown (worn). Weight 1072 grams, 34.4 troy ounces. Height 22cm. Base 13.4cm. London 1752. Maker James Gould.
The candlesticks are in very condition with no damage or restoration. Both sticks are stamped underneath and have matching date and maker, the sconces have the lion mark, the nozzles are unmarked. The engravings show signs of wear.
Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
Cast candlesticks started to appear circa 1685, these are much heavier in weight and capable of withstanding greater wear. The first loaded candlesticks appeared circa 1765 and are made of sheet, and not cast.
