SUPERB PAIR OF OLD SHEFFIELD FUSED SILVER PLATE CANDLESTICKS BY MATTHEW BOULTON

HI , AND WELCOME TO THIS sale FOR A WONDERFUL PAIR OF GEORGIAN ' OLD SHEFFIELD PLATE ' OR 'FUSED PLATE' CANDLESTICKS.

A SIMPLY LOVELY PAIR, OF A WONDERUL STYLE & IN GREAT CONDITION TOO.

BY THE WORLD FAMOUS INDUSTRIAL MANUFACTURER ' MATTHEW BOULTON ' OF BIRMINGHAM, AND BOTH BEAR HIS 'TWIN SUN ' MAKERS MARK.

THESE WOULD DATE TO AROUND 1780 - 1810 OR THERE ABOUTS. SO ARE ROUGHLY 210 - 230 YEARS OLD, YET STILL LOOK SO SUPERB EVEN NOW.

EACH HAS AN ENGRAVED ' FAMILY CREST ' OF AN ARM, WITH ARMOUR UPON IT, HOLDING A BROKEN SPEAR. I AM NOT SURE AS TO THE EXACT FAMILY THAT THIS IS FOR, BUT LOADS OF INFORMATION IS ONLINE ABOUT FAMILY CRESTS.

THESE ARE ENGRAVED TO EACH BASE & MOST UNUSUAL IT FEATURES AGAIN ENGRAVED TO THE SCONCE ON TOP.

BOTH HAVE VERY LITTLE 'BLEEDING' OF THE COPPER BASE , WITH JUST SOME UPON THE RAISED AREAS & THEY LOOK SUPERB.

DECORATED WITH FABULOUS SILVER BORDERS, WITH LEAD FILLING. THESE ARE OF THE VERY FINE ' EGG & LEAF ' PATTERN, AND APPEAR AROUND THE DIAMETER OF THE BASE, LOWER & UPPER MIDDLE SECTION, AROUND THE SOCKETS & UPON THE SCONCES ON TOP. SIMPLY SUPERB.

THE ' EGG & LEAF ' PATTERN AS ITS KNOWN FROM THE OLD PATTERN BOOKS OF THE LATE GEORGIAN PERIOD, IS A VERY FINE DESIGN. THE 'EGG' PART IS A SIMPLE OVAL SHAPE, WITH AN 'ACANTHUS' LEAF TO EITHER SIDE.

THESE WONDERFUL CANDLESTICKS FEATURE THIS PATTERN IN 2 FORMS. SOME PARTS HAVE THE 'EGG & LEAF' IN ELONGATED FORM, AND OTHERS AREAS HAVE THE DECORATION IN A SHORTER SHAPE. SUPERB & VERY STUNNING TO THE EYE.

''THERE WAS AN EXACT MATCHING PAIR OF THESE MATTHEW BOULTON CANDLESTICKS, BUT IN SILVER, SOLD AT CHRISTIES IN NEW YORK A FEW YEARS BACK FOR AROUND £3500. THESE WERE SOLID SILVER BUT EXACTLY THE SAME DECORATION & MAKER & FROM THE SAME PERIOD {LATE 18TH CENTURY}''.

ONLY SLIGHT FAULTS TO NOTE IS THAT ONE OF THE CANDLESTICKS HAS A SLIGHT 'LEAN' AS IT HAS HAD AN OLD REPAIR TO JUST ABOVE THE BASE, WHERE THE COLUMN STARTS & IS SLIGHTLY TO THE SIDE. AND THE OTHER HAS A COUPLE OF SMALL HOLES AROUND THE LOWER BASE WHERE IT LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE WAS GOING TO CONVERT TO A LAMP ?

HOWEVER, THEY ARE STILL A STUNNING, MATCHING PAIR OF VERY OLD & INDEED FULLY USEABLE CANDLESTICKS.

AFABULOUS ANTIQUE PAIR FOR THE MORE DISCERNING COLLECTOR OF FINE SILVER PLATE / OLD SHEFFIELD WARES.

CONDITION :

THEY ARE STUNNING FOR THEIR AGE. AND OF REAL QUALITY. VERY SLIGHT COPPER 'BLEEDING' IN PLACES, BUT ONLY VISABLE ON RAISED EDGES.

A 'SOLDER' REPAIR AROUND THE BOTTOM OF THE MIDDLE SECTION / TOP OF BASE, ON JUST ONE OF THE CANDLESTICKS. THE BASE PLATE ON THIS ONE HAS MOVED A LITTLE & IS SLIGHTLY LOOSE.

THE OTHER HAS 2 X SMALL HOLES TO BOTTOM/SIDE OF BASE, WHERE IT APPEARS SOMEONE WANTED TO MAKE INTO A LAMP, BUT GAVE UP. SHAME BUT NOT TOO BAD.

APART FROM THESE MINOR DEFECTS I HOPE YOU WILL SEE THEY ARE A SIMPLY WONDERFUL PAIR.

SIZE & WEIGHT :

EACH FINE CANDLESTICK MEASURES 24 CM TALL & HAS A DIAMETER AT THE BASE OF 13 CM.

WEIGHT OF THE PAIR = 2012 GRAMS / JUST OVER 2 KG'S. SUPERB, HEAVY QUALITY.

MAKERSMARKS/ HALL MARKS :

  • BOTH STAMPED WITH A ' DOUBLE SUN ' MAKERS MARK FOR MATTHEW BOULTON OF BIRMINGHAM.
  • EACH HAS THE 'FAMILY CREST' ENGRAVED MARK TO THE BASE AREA & AGAIN TO ONE OF THE SCONCES ON TOP.

PLEASE VIEW ALL PHOTOS SO THAT YOU CAN FULLY APPREICIATE WHAT A WONDERFUL QUALITY PAIR OF ANTIQUE GEORGIAN CANDLESTICKS THESE ARE.

SO THERE WE HAVE IT. A SUPERB, ANTIQUE PAIR OF OLD SHEFFIELD FUSED PLATE CANDLESTICKS, BY ONE OF THE BEST MAKERS & OF A STUNNING FORM TOO. THESE WOULD PLEASE ANY ANTIQUE / SILVER PLATE COLLECTOR.
