Vintage Pair of Hallmarked Sterling Silver Candlesticks (6 ¾ tall) 1977
Pair of Vintage Sterling Silver Candlesticks. These beautiful candlesticks are made from sterling silver although the bases and stems are filled which is fairly common. They are reproductions of a popular Georgian design with knopped stems and circular bases which are outlined with grooves. The sconces are fixed as is usual with this design of stick and they accommodate candles measuring up to 1.9cm (¾) in diameter. The bases are covered with a black leatherette material. Both sticks are clearly hallmarked for London 1977 and they have the Queens head signifying this as being the Royal Jubilee year. They also have the makers mark of William Comyns and Sons. Please note that it appears these sticks were originally gilded although 98% of this has worn off through years of polishing. It is still possible, however, to see traces of the gold in the grooves (which accentuates them) although this will eventually wear away with cleaning. These sticks are in beautiful condition and both stand nice and vertical without a wobble. The only things to mention are a small nail head-sized dent to the edge of one of the bases, a small dink to the rim of one sconce and some tiny pinhead dints here and there on the edges of some knops although these are barely noticeable. The coverings on the bases are in very good condition and both are secure with no staining. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN PAGE TO SEE MORE IMAGES Approximate Measurements.
