HUGE PAIR OF GEORGIAN OLD SHEFFIELD PLATE ~ SILVER FUSED ON COPPER CANDLESTICKS

HI , AND WELCOME TO THIS sale FOR THE MOST UNUSUAL, VERY LARGE & HEAVY PAIR OF GEORGIAN 'OLD SHEFFIELD PLATE' FUSED SILVER ON COPPER CANDLESTICKS.

DECORATED WITH WONDERFUL SOLID SILVER 'LEAD FILLED' BORDERS THAT ARE STILL IN AMAZING CONDITION.

THESE DETAIL FABULOUS 'SCROLLING ACANTHUS LEAVES' AROUND THE DIAMETER OF THE BASES, LOWER & UPPER SHAFTS & AGAIN TO THE SCONCES ON TOP.

THERE ARE A FURTHER 4 HUGE ACANTHUS LEAVES 'CLIMBING' UP THE CENTRAL SHAFTS, WHICH LOOK STUNNING. THIS PARTICULAR DECORATION REMINDS ME OF SOME ' MATTHEW BOULTON ' CANDLESTICKS I SOLD A WHILE BACK, ALTHOUGH SADLY THESE BEAR NO MAKERS MARKS TO CONFIRM. THESE ARE HOWEVER, SIGNIFICANTLY LARGER.

THESE ARE A SUPERB, LARGE AND VERY STURDY PAIR. EACH ONE WEIGHS AROUND 1.3 KG & THE PAIR ARE JUST OVER 2.7 KG'S IN TOTAL. SUPERB HEAVY QUALITY.

THE HEIGHT OF EACH IS AN IMPRESSIVE AT 28 & 29 CM RESPECTIVELY, AND THE BASES ARE EACH 14 CM IN DIAMETER.

THE MAIN 'SHAFT' OF EACH CANDLESTICK IS 'EXTRA WIDE' & VERY THICK AT 4.5 CM AT ITS WIDEST AND 6.5 AT THE UPPER SCONE.

NORMAL SIZE ON GEORGIAN CANDLESTICKS TENDS TO BE AROUND 2.5 - 3 CM ON THE SHAFT & 4 - 4.5 CM UPPER SCONCE. SO EACH OF THESE ARE A FEW CM WIDER ALL OVER. A WONDERFUL SIZE.

THESE FABULOUS OLD SHEFFIELD CANDLESTICKS ARE BEAUTIFUL & FREE FROM ANY REPAIRS, ALTHOUGH EACH DOES HAVE SOME COPPER 'BLEEDING' THROUGH IN VARIOUS PLACES. BUT STILL A FABULOUS PAIR NONE THE LESS.

THE BASES ARE SUPERB. NO 'LOOSE' PLASTER FILLING ON EITHER OF THESE, AS EACH HAS A PROPER 'CAST IRON' WEIGHTED BASE. FILLED WITH BLACK 'PITCH'.

A SIMPLY SUPERB PAIR, OF REAL LARGE & HEAVY QUALITY GEORGIAN CANDLESTICKS.

CONDITION :

THESE ARE A SUPERB PAIR IN A GREAT SOLID CONDITION & WITH EXCELLENT DECORATION.

NO REPAIRS AT ALL.

ONLY SOME WEAR / COPPER BLEEDING IN VARIOUS PLACES.

THERE ARE NO HISTORIC REPAIRS AT ALL, WHICH IS VERY NICE TO SEE, AS MOST CANDLESTICKS HAVE HAD A REPAIR AT SOME POINT IN THEIR LIVES, BUT THESE DO NOT AT ALL.

JUST SOME SMALL 'DINKS' AROUND THE LOWER BASE EDGE, THATS ALL.

EACH ONE IS SUPERB.

SIZE & WEIGHT :

ONE CANDLESTICK MEASURES 29 CM TALL, BUT THE SCONCE WILL NOT COME OUT. THE OTHER IS 28 CM IN HEIGHT & THE SCONCE LIFTS OFF EASILY ?

I THINK PERHAPS THE 1 CM DIFFERENCE IS DUE TO THE SCONCE BEING 'STUCK UP' SLIGHTLY, AS THESE ARE A MATCHING PAIR & OBVIOUSLY WOULD BE THE SAME HEIGHT.

EACH BASE IS 14 CM IN DIAMETER.

WEIGHT OF PAIR = 2738 GRAMS / JUST OVER 2.7 KG'S. VERY IMPRESSIVE, HEAVY QUALITY.

MAKERSMARKS/ HALL MARKS :

  • SADLY NO MAKERS MARKS AT ALL {WHICH IS QUITE COMMON ON OLD SHEFFIELD PIECES}.
  • NO PATTERN NUMBERS IN THE SOCKETS EITHER ?

PLEASE VIEW ALL PHOTOS SO THAT YOU CAN FULLY APPREICIATE WHAT A WONDERFUL & SUPERB PAIR THIS IS.
