A fine late eighteenth century George III oval silver chamberstick which is very plain and of oval form, with a circular nozzle and still retains all its original fittings.

The chamberstick was made in London in 1792 by Elizabeth Jones with original steel wick trimmers.

The condition of the chamberstick is excellent.

Weight, 8.5 troy oz, without steel wick trimmer.

Elizabeth Jones

It is believed that Jones was the widow of one Robert Jones, but this is uncertain. She is known to have registered her mark on 15th January 1783 and has been ascribed an address of 49 Bartholomew Close; her occupation at this time was listed as plateworker.

She specialised in the production of salvers and trays, and numerous trays by her have survived. No record either of apprenticeship or of freedom has been found.

Two pieces by Jones are in the collection of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, a George III teapot stand of 1783 and a George III tray of 1795.
