Imposing and well above standard, pair of silver George III, tall Corinthian filled candlesticks on square bases. Made in London in 1761 by Ebenezer Coker. The columns are fluted, very much in the style of William and Mary candlesticks. The heavy square bases are decorated with fluting and acanthus leaves as well as a band of tied reeding at the top and bottom of each base. The very attractive Corinthian capital sconces are decorated with intricate open-work, above two rows of acanthus leaves. The full set of hallmarks is struck very clearly on one side of the rim at the base of each candlestick. The maker's mark for Ebenezer Coker is struck more lightly and the first letter is slightly rubbed but still very legible. The nozzle of each candlestick is clearly marked with the maker's mark and the lion passant. The owner's initials - R F W are engraved in Gothic script on each candlestick on the opposite side of the rim to the hallmarks.

Ebenezer Coker made mainly candlesticks and salvers. He was renowned for his high quality of workmanship and the heavy gauge of silver that he used. Originally, there were quite probably at least four of these candlesticks if not more, as one of the sconces has a 4 engraved on its top. Their height of 13 inches makes them impressive and also permits them to shed much more light than the average candlestick of the period. To-day, these candlesticks would grace any table.
Some minor signs of wear but considering their age and the fact that candlesticks were used a great deal, this pair is in very good condition indeed. The hallmarks are very good and crisp, even on the nozzles.
