A Pair of William IVth 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 materials including brass, copper, silver plate and wood.
This impressive pair of candlesticks are Old Sheffield plated, which is different to electroplated. Old Sheffield plate had a thin sheet of silver that was rolled onto copper as opposed to silver particles electrolysed on to nickel or stainless steel.
A fine pair of candlesticks with a naïveté shaped base and reeded column.
Condition is good with no splits or cracks, there is some copper bleeding through on the edges as is the nature of Old Sheffield Plate.
Dimensions; 29 cm high x 16.5 cm wide.
