Thecondition is used and Excellent for its age.
The Chamber Candlestick has No Dents, No Splits, No Cracks,No Holes and No Repairs that Ican find,the chamber candlestick stands straight, the definition and decoration is very crisp, the silver plate is in near Mint condition as it not rubbed or worn through, the candle sconce and snuffer can be easily removed and they fit perfectly in place, the Elkington date and makers marks are still clearly legible although as this chamber candlestick is a used antique the candle snuffer has a dented lower rim and the chamber stick has some extremely minor surface marks and wear from use, it has the patinaof age that is to be expected and a good clean would enhance it greatly. Personally I think that this antique chamber candlestick can still be used today and that they would make a superb addition to any cabinet collection, I also think that it would look wonderful in the correct setting with a lit candle in it and that it looks absolutely fantastic considering that it's over 160 years old.
This Superb Quality Victorian Leaf, Vine &Berry Decorated Silver Plate Chamber Candlestick & Snuffer by Elkington &Co dated 1851 is one of several pieces of antique and collectable silver that I have also listed.
