Pair of Vintage Sterling Silver Candlesticks. These impressive candlesticks are made from sterling silver although the bases and stems are filled to provide stability. They are of plain form with fixed sconces that will accommodate candlesticks measuring up to 1.9cm (¾) in diameter, tapered stems and domed, circular feet that are covered with green baize to the bases.
They are both hallmarked for Birmingham with the maker's mark of L J Millington. However, although they are identical, one is dated 1988 and the other 1991. These slight discrepancies are quite common as the maker would have produced a large quantity and matched them up according to need. These sticks are in beautiful condition and they stand nice and vertically.
The only things to mention are a very small dint to the top edge of one foot and small dent to the side of the edge - neither very noticeable. The baize coverings are secure with just a bit of silver polish staining around the edges.
One is a slightly different shad of green to the other. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN PAGE TO SEE MORE IMAGES Approximate Measurements.

Prices are calculated to include the weight of packaging as well as the weight of the item. To ensure items are safe in transit, I package them very well and, unfortunately, this does increase mailing costs somewhat.
All packages must be signed for upon receipt. Should you wish to return an item, please contact me as soon as possible after receiving it. I source and re-home high quality antique and vintage silver at wholesale prices.
On the odd occasion, I come across something that might have had a bit of a rough life but deserves a second chance rather than being consigned to the melting pot. In all cases, because buyers are purchasing from a distance, I always provide in-depth condition reports and multiple high-magnification images in my listings to give you as much information as possible.
