In 'A Study Collection of Marked Domestic Brass and other Base Metalware c.1600-c.1900' (Marwood House, Devon, 2001), Roderick Butler records the marks of the maker George Grove of Birmingham (fl.1748-1768), revealing that this pair of candlesticks are stamped with Grove’s mark II. Butler explains that George Grove is variously recorded from 1748-1768, and that the earliest extant 'Birmingham Directory' of 1767 lists him as a candlestick maker, just a year before his death. Butler illustrates four candlestick patterns made by Grove (figures 60-63, p.42). Figure 63 shows a similar candlestick design.
Eloy Koldeweij’s 'The English Candlestick: 1425-1925' (Christie’s, London, 2001) illustrates a comparable pair of brass candlesticks made by George Grove, also stamped and with petal bases.
