About

A magnificent, exceptional, fine and impressive, pair of large antique Georgian English sterling silver architectural column candlesticks; part of our ornamental silverware collection. These magnificent antique Georgian English sterling silver candlesticks have a plain subtly tapering columnar form. The large and impressive Corinthian capital of each candlestick retains the original hallmarked detachable push fit sconce ornamented with a plain moulded rim. The cylindrical columns are supported by a cuboid plinth to an impressive plain square stepped three tier base. Each plinth is embellished with a fine and impressive bright cut engraved coat of arms depicting the Head family coat of arms encircled with a belt accented with the family motto 'Study Quiet'. The bases retain the original contemporary engraved inscription 'A token of respect from Francis Head to her aunt Dame Mary Ann Head. 1803' to the lowest tier. Both candlesticks are fitted with turned mahogany bases to the underside. These magnificent Georgian candlesticks were crafted by George Eadon, George Kibbles & John Weaver of George Eadon & Co. The title ‘Dame’ was the traditional style for the wife of a baronet at this time and before although it was interchangeable with the title ‘Lady’. Condition These antique Georgian candlesticks are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in presentation condition. These silver column candlesticks are in the original and exceptional condition in keeping with age. There are minor blemishes to each candlestick as to be expected in keeping with age; this does not detract from the aesthetic appearance of this fine pair of candlesticks. Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each candlestick and part hallmarks to the sleeve of each sconce are all very clear; the hallmarks to each candlestick are slightly worn in keeping with age. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these fine examples of Georgian silverware.
