These beautiful and quite substantial candlesticks are made from sterling silver although the bases and stems have been filled to give form and weight. The have fixed sconces (which will accommodate candles measuring up to 2.3cm or 0.9 in diameter), knopped stems and sloped circular bases. The sticks are exquisitely decorated to the knops and bases with scrolling foliage in high relief. The bases are covered with a wood-effect material.
Both sticks are hallmarked to the base for Birmingham 1963 with the makers mark of Broadway & Co. Theses sticks are in lovely condition. They stand nice and vertical without a wobble and the decorative detail is very crisp. The only issues to bring to your attention are a very small, light bruise to the edge of one sconce cup and a few pinhead dints around the outer edges of the bases. Please be aware that, after 56 years, there will be tiny surface abrasions caused through use.The base coverings are in good order with just some staining caused by silver polish.
