An exceptional, fine and impressive pair of antique English cast Britannia standard silver candlesticks; an addition to our early 18th century silverware collection.
These exceptional antique Britannia silver* candlesticks have a plain octagonal panelled form onto a domed octagonal base, all in the classic English form.
The panelled capitals are encompassed with bands of applied moulded decoration.
The panelled baluster shaped columns feature stepped octagonal knops to the upper and lower portions.
The columns surmount a stepped octagonal base accented with an incurved collet style rim.
Each base is embellished with an impressive contemporary engraved coat of arms.
These Queen Anne candlesticks are exceptional examples of their type.
* Britannia Silver - The Britannia silver standard of 958 (95.84% of fine silver), denoted by the icon of the seated Britannia holding an oval shield, was introduced by William III in 1697. This was to indicate the slightly higher standard of silver from sterling silver standard of 925 (92.5% of fine silver).
These Queen Anne candlesticks are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.
Full hallmarks struck to the underside of each base are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver.
Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these examples of antique 18th century silverware.
