Sterling Silver Travelling Candlesticks - Antique Victorian. An exceptional, fine and impressive pair of antique Victorian English sterling silver travelling candlesticks; an addition to our ornamental silverware collection.
These exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver travelling candlesticks have a plain circular rounded form. The surface of each candlestick is plain and unembellished. The travelling silver candlesticks by John Grinsell & Sons are fitted with the original, hallmarked screw fit cylindrical capitals, encircled with bands of tooled decoration. Each capital and drip pan base is encompassed with a plain applied moulded border to the rim. The capitals unscrew from the bases and can be compartmentalised inside one drip pan base, allowing the two pieces to be screwed together and form a travelling case.
These antique silver candlesticks by John Grinsell & Sons are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition. Each piece has been professionally polished and is in presentation condition. Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each base and part hallmarks to each capital are all very clear; the hallmarks are struck deeply due to the exceptional gauge of silver. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these pieces of antique Victorian silverware.
Height of assembled candlestick 5.3cm/2.1. Diameter of capital 2.6cm/1. Diameter of base 8.2cm/3.2. Maker: John Grinsell & Sons.
