These exceptional vintage cast Portuguese silver five light candelabra have plain bell shaped capitals onto a tapering knopped column to a circular spreading foot.

The bell shaped capitals are ornamented with subtly concave fluted decoration and encompassed with a band of reed decoration.

Each capital is fitted with the original hallmarked push fit sconce and surmounts an impressive circular drip pan.

The central capital retains the original hallmarked push fit urn shaped snuffer.

Each impressive candelabrum retains the original push fit interlacing, faceted scrolling arms; these candelabra can be used as candlesticks once the push fit arms (labra) are detached.

The tapering panelled columns of the candlesticks are encompassed with plain knops, in addition to reed decoration to the upper portion.

The circular base of each candlestick is encompassed with further concave fluted ornamentation above a band of reed decoration.

The impressive vintage candelabra do not have weighted bases.
