A Large Pair of Mid Victorian Silver Plated Candlesticks
Candlesticks and candelabra would have been used throughout the house as lighting in every room. They would adorn various places in the house, including dining tables during mealtimes, mantlepieces throughout the evenings, and bedsides at night. They came in various shapes and sizes and were made from a variety of materials including wood, brass, silver and silver plate.
This is a tall pair of elegant silver plated candlesticks in the neoclassical design. The sconses are removable to aid the cleaning and removing of candle wax. They would have been in the home of a wealthy family.
The condition is very good, with no ware to the silver plate and no cracks or splits.
Dimensions: 29cm high with a base of 15cm x 12cm
