'The design (of Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral) was a bold one dominated by a massive central steeple... There it stood for over a century serving as the church of the local parish of Our Lady Immaculate until the 1980s when, weather-beaten and structurally unsafe, it was demolished'.

Similar, as well as more embellished, versions of Gothic candlesticks were made to designs of A.W.N.Pugin by John Hardman and Company of Birmingham, who supplied candelabra and candlesticks for both domestic and public interiors, including the Houses of Parliament.
