Pair of Silver Corinthian Column Candlesticks. These beautiful candlesticks are made from sterling silver although, as is quite common, they have been filled to the stems and bases to provide form and stability. They are made in the form of Grecian Corinthian columns with ornamental foliage and scrolls to the sconce bowls, grooves to the top of the columns and fluting to the lower sections, and the square bases are stepped with lines of beading to top and bottom with a green baize covering underneath. The sconces are not removable and are decorated with a line of beading to the edges. They will accommodate candles measuring 1.9cm (0.75). Both sticks have British hallmarks showing they were assayed as sterling silver in London in 1985 and have the sponsors mark ALd. The form of hallmark used shows that the sticks were imported for sale in the UK and I think the style of the other 0.925 stamp on the sticks is used in Switzerland. There is also a makers mark in a triangular cartouche but I havent been able to identify it. Both sticks are in lovely condition with no dents and they stand nice and vertical without a wobble. The decorative work is very crisp and there are no holes in the silver which is a common flaw with older sticks of this style. The only things to mention are one or two pinhead dints to the stems which are barely noticeable and that the baize coverings are a bit stained. Whilst cleaning, I noticed that there was a very slight rattle in one stick which would be a tiny piece of filling thats loose inside.
