This pair of candlesticks both have a trefoil shaped protrusion which forms the elevating thumbpiece of the slide ejector, and John Caspall explains that this trefoil shape is ‘an early eighteenth century introduction’ (John Caspall, 'Fire and Light in the home pre-1820' (Antique Collectors’ Club, 2000). Caspall dates a similar candlestick, in Figure 216, to c.1710-20.
There are also a number of pairs of similar English ejector candlesticks, with a variety of different bases dated 1710-1715 in Rupert Gentle, Belinda Gentle and Rachael Field, 'Domestic Metalwork: 1640-1820', Antique Collectors’ Club, 1994, p. 133, plates 40, 41 and 43.
