Sterling Silver Two Light Candelabra - George I Style - Vintage (1959). These fine vintage Elizabeth II sterling silver candelabra have a plain circular form, in the George I style. Each impressive two light candelabrum retains the original hallmarked detachable push fit scrolling arms, which support two rounded waisted capitals with plain circular dished drip pans.These versatile vintage candelabra can be used as candlesticks once the arms (labra) are detached. The knopped stems are surmounted on sunken wells, to tooled decorated circular spreading bases. The filled bases retain the original leatherette covering to the underside. The base of each was made by Richard Comyns of William Comyns & Sons Ltd and the labra were crafted by William Bruford & Son; these items will have been crafted in the same year but due to the hallmarking system the bases are struck with the date letter "d" and the labra bear "e".
Two different makers crafting alternative components of candelabra is not an uncommon praCtice due to the manufaCturing process. These vintage sterling silver candlesticks are a very good gauge of silver, very good quality and in excellent presentation condition. Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each base and part hallmarks to the sleeve of each labra are all very clear. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these pieces of vintage silverware. Width across arms 26.4cm/10.4.
