A fine heavy gauge George III antique silver chamberstick made in 1816 by Rebecca Emes & Edward Barnard of London. The chamberstick is of oblong form, with an unusual floral border.
The nozzle and snuffer are hallmarked and original. The chamberstick, also, has its original close plated steel wick trimmers which slide underneath.
The additional steel wick trimmers are quite rare as they are often, either missing, or, get thrown away. In the middle years of the 19th century, the wick trimmer became unnecessary as the new style candles did not need to be trimmed.
Dimensions: height 15.6 cm, 17 x 8.8 cm; weight 14.85 troy oz.
Rebecca Emes (died 1830) was an English silversmith, known for her household silverware. Little is known of her life. She married the engraver and watercolour painter John Emes.
In 1796, John Emes became partner in the London silversmith company of Thomas Chawner and his son Henry Chawner. The firm specialised in silver tea and coffee services. When the elder Chawner retired, Emes became sole owner and presumably carried on his own work of creating engravings for publications, while Rebecca started to work in the silversmith business.
John Emes died in 1808 and Rebecca became a partner with Edward Barnard, the foreman, and Henry Chawner. The firm, which operated under the name Rebecca Emes & Edward Barnard, grew considerably during their tenure. Emes withdrew from the business in 1829.
