For your consideration we have a rare set of 4 matching sterling silver Georgian style candle sticks from Hawksworth, Eyre & Co. of Sheffield, England circa 1926.
These great holders come to you in as-found estate condition. They measure 5-1/8"(130mm) tall, 4-1/8"(104mm) square base and have good clear hallmarks. They are of a handsome urn form mounted on flared concentric square pedestal bases with gadroon and garland accents and removable bobeches. The bobeches are hallmarked-matched to the holders. Though the columns are hollow through to the base and likely reinforced, i am confident the perimeter of the bases are solid and not weighted.
These candle holders have some signs of table wear including nicks along the face of the bases, and a small corner dent on two of the bases - one on the underside of the corner where it cannot really be seen, the other on the top as shown and somewhat exaggerated by the lighting in the pics. Two have small 'dints'/dimples on the shoulders (one circled in red; the other will not show in photos) and two of the bobeches have some scratches on the top. Bits of the cement in the columns have come loose, likely as they dry out over time/receive a knock, creating a bit of a rattle effect when shaken (but who does that?).
Each candle holder weighs 595, 601, 604, 614 grams respectively, for an impressive total sterling silver weight of 2415grams(77.9oz.Tr.). Fine silver candle holders as these are usually sold in singles or pairs if you are lucky, but how often do you get a chance to own a set of four?!
These lovely sterling candle holders are totally presentable as is, but with a buff even that much better! For

On 04-Feb-13 at 09:02:33 EST, seller added the following information:
I RESPONDED MORE THAN ONCE TO THE QUESTION AS TO IF THE HOLDERS WERE WEIGHTED OR NOT, BUT I FORGOT TO POST THE RESPONSE SO I AM INCLUDING IT HERE:
THESE HOLDERS ARE NOT MARKED AS WEIGHTED AND UNLESS I TEAR THEM APART THERE IS NO KNOWING "FOR SURE". HOWEVER, AS PER LISTING - THOUGH THE UPPER COLUMNS/STEMS ARE HOLLOW AND PROBABLY REINFORCED, I AM CONFIDENT THE BASES ARE SOLID AND NOT WEIGHTED. THAT IS, THOUGH THEY LIKELY CONTAIN SOME ADHESIVE, I BELIEVE THEY ARE MOSTLY, IF NOT ALL STERLING SILVER.
