Huge Pair 5 Light Candelabra, 1975
Candelabra (Pair) - 5-light; Square with Scroll Decoration - Birmingham 1975 by Barker Ellis Silver Company - 56cm total height (22"); 41.5cm spread of branches; 33cm height of candlestick; 6.9kg gross combined weight - GG/1366
These are a huge pair of silver candelabra that would grace any large dining table. Furthermore there is a matching pair of 3-light candelabra to make up an impressive suite for a particularly large dining table or in combination with a sideboard (see final photo and link below).
There are four branches and a central column each capable of holding a candle and fitted with a removeable sconce nozzle for easing the cleaning of spent wax. The central light has the additional feature of a removable flame design candle snuffer.
The pair of candlesticks can stand alone should the need arise and at 13" high make an imposing pairing even without the branches. They are filled to the interior to ensure plenty of stability with the weight of the branches.
Finding pairs of large silver candelabra such as these (they measure 22" in height) is no mean feat as few have been made in solid silver. All the component parts of this pair are appropriately hallmarked and they are in fabulous polished condition too.
These are a magnificent set of silver candelabra.
