VERY RARE GEORGIAN Solid Silver CHAMBER STICK 1797 Hallmarked London Sterling NR

COMPLETE & ORIGINAL - William Abdy II - 4 troy - SUPERB

This is a very attractive and most unusual ANTIQUE GEORGIAN solid sterling silver candlestick or chamberstick that was made in London, England in 1797 by the illustrious Georgian silversmith, William Abdy II at his Wilson Street workshops. It is in a traditional oval shape with an oval nozzle and a stunningring handle with a thumb piece. It has stunning reeded borders to the edges of the stick and to the edges of the removable nozzle. It has a lovely snuffer attached with a chain.It measures about 2" high by 4 1/2" wide across the base and 1 3/4" wide across the nozzle. It is not loaded, filled or weighted to the base. It is very substantial - it weighs124.5 grams -4troy oz. It is NOT engraved.

It is in very good condition with a little less than the usual surface scratching, no splits or dents, NO dings and very little distortion - SUPERB - but it does need a better clean than I have had time to give it. Each of the three pieces is hallmarked withW.A, lion passant (sterling silver assay mark),crowned leopard head, B, George III duty markshowing that it was hallmarked in London in 1797- I have shown the hallmark so that you can make up your own mind The nozzle is similarly hallmarked. A really rare and unusualGEORGIAN English chamber stick after over205 years - so really unusual to find an original set - a chamberstick with its original nozzle & snuffer. Postage will be 4.50GBP both within the UK and to international destinations.
