Old Sheffield plate was a process used in Georgian times to make articles from a sheet of copper fused with a thin sheet of sterling silver. This process predates the silver plating done today (electroplating) which started in the 1840s. The majority of these silverwares were made in Sheffield, UK (hence the term Old Sheffield plate) which was a major UK centre for silver production.

The candelabras are unmarked as are most articles made from Old Sheffield plate. The date can be determined from the style; circular based candlesticks with highly decorated borders of foliage and flowers such as these were popular in the period 1810-1840.
