Late Georgian Set of Four Large Old Sheffield Plate Candlesticks, circa 1820 - 1830. Each candlestick is raised on a circular base with plain tapering stems and foliate applied shoulders. The foliate applied nozzles are removable.
The inclusion of the words 'SILVER EDGES' inside each nozzle means that these candlesticks can be attributed to Roberts, Cadman & Co. (Roberts, Smith & Co. from 1826). It was this firm that introduced threaded silver edges on products.
In very good condition with moderate to high surface wear and areas of copper bleed. Free of any significant dents and creases. The sides of the bases are in excellent condition. The undersides of the bases are wooden and probably replacements. Each candlestick stands straight. Higher wear to the applied foliate detail where some of the lead is visible. These candlesticks have not been replated and are ready to use.
Approximate weight of all four candlesticks is 4.5 kilos.
Approximate dimensions of one are 32 cm height and 14 cm base diameter.
