WONDERFUL GEORGIAN OLD SHEFFIELD PLATE 3 PIECE CHAMBERSTICK BY MATTHEW BOULTON

HI , AND WELCOME TO THIS sale FOR A WONDERFUL GEORGIAN OLD SHEFFIELD PLATE PIECE IN THE FORM OF A VERY FINE CHAMBER CANDLESTICK.

THIS FABULOUS PIECE IS IN GREAT CONDITION, DESPITE BEING WELL OVER 220 YEARS OLD.

IT BEARS THE 'TWIN SUNS' MAKERS MARK FOR THE MOST REVERED BIRMINGHAM MANUFACTURER '' MATTHEW BOULTON '' OF SOHO WORKS.

THE MAIN OLD SHEFFIELD PLATERS, AND BY FAR THE BEST WERE OBVIOUSLY FROM SHEFFIELD. AS BIRMINGHAM WARES WERE SEEN AS A LITTLE 'INFERIOR' TO THAT OF SHEFFIELD. APART FROM ONE MAKER WHO STOOD OUT, WITH BOTH HIGH QUALITY & MASS PRODUCTION. AND THIS WAS MATTHEW BOULTON.

MANY AN OLD MANUSCRIPT OR DOCUMENT IS QUOTED AS SAYING '' BIRMINGHAM WARES ARE NOT WITHSTANDING TO THE QUALITY OF SHEFFIELD, APART FROM THE SOHO WORKS''. REFERRING TO MATTHEW BOULTON & HIS FINE ENTERPRISE.

HE WAS A FOUNDER MEMBER OF THE 'LUNAR SOCIETY' ALONG WITH ANOTHER FAMOUS MANUFACTURER 'JOSIAH WEDGWOOD' {IM SURE YOU HAVE HEARD OF THAT NAME??}

THIS WAS A MONTHLY MEETING UPON THE NEW MOON {THUS THE NAME LUNAR} BETWEEN MANY GREAT ENTREPRENUERS OF THE GEORGIAN ERA.

BUT BACK TO THIS LOVELY PIECE, WHICH IS A FINE EXAMPLE OF HIS WORK.

THE 8 'LOBED' BASE HAS A THICK SOLID SILVER BORDER WITH LEAD FILLING, AND BEAUTIFUL LINES TO EACH LOBE, THAT GENTLY 'FADE' INTO THE CENTRE.

THERE IS A SHORT SOCKET IN THE CENTRE, WITH A 'RIBBED' BAND TO THE BASE.

THE SCONCE HAS 6 LOBED SIDES, AGAIN WITH SILVER FILLED BORDER, AND COMPLIMENTS THE BASE WELL.

THE SCROLL HANDLE HAS A NICE TOP PIECE ADDED FOR STRENGTH, AND A SQUARE PEG SLOT FOR HOLDING THE SNUFFER. THIS IS ALSO PRESENT, WHICH IS NICE TO SEE AS OFTEN THEY GO MISSING. IT IS OF THE TYPICAL 'CONICAL' FORM & SERVES ITS PURPOSE WELL.

GRAB YOURSELF A SUPERB PIECE BY ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS OLD SHEFFIELD PLATERS.

CONDITION :

THIS IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL PIECE, IN BOTH STYLE & CONDITION.

BEING 220 ODD YEARS OLD IT DOES HAVE SOME WEAR FROM AGE / USE.

THERE HAS BEEN A SMALL 'HISTORIC' REPAIR TO THE HANDLE.

AND THERE IS A LITTLE WEAR TO THE SOLID SILVER BORDERS, WITH SOME COPPER ALSO GENTLY 'BLEEDING' THROUGH.

BUT NONE OF THIS DETRACTS FROM THIS WONDERFUL PIECE , AND AS I HOPE YOU WILL SEE IT IS A STUNNING ITEM. FROM THE FINE GEORGIAN PERIOD, & BY ONE OF THE BEST MAKERS AROUND.

SIZE & WEIGHT :

THIS CHAMBER CANDLESTICK MEASURES 14 CM DIAMETER AT BASE.

HEIGHT IS 5.5 CM.

SNUFFER CAP IS JUST OVER 8 CM LONG.

WEIGHT = 277 GRAMS.

MAKERSMARKS/ HALL MARKS :

  • MAKERS MARK OF ' TWIN SUNS ' TO BASE - THIS IS FOR MATTHEW BOULTON OF BIRMINGHAM
  • INSIDE SOCKET IS AN ENGRAVED ' ACORN '. THIS IS HIGHLY DETAILED AND IS A MASTER CRAFTSMANS MARK, ALTHOUGH SADLY I DO NOT KNOW THE NAME OF THE CRAFTSMAN WHO MADE IT.

PLEASE VIEW ALL PHOTOS SO THAT YOU CAN FULLY APPREICIATE WHAT A WONDERFUL COLLECTABLE PIECE THIS IS.

SO THERE WE HAVE IT. A SUPERB, ANTIQUE GEORGIAN ' FUSED PLATE ' CHAMBER CANDLESTICK, BY A VERY FAMOUS MAKER. THIS WILL PLEASE ANY ANTIQUE / SILVER PLATE COLLECTOR.
