Maker: John Arnell

A pretty pair of antique silver George III chambersticks one dated 1778 and the other in 1779.

They have an elegant fine beaded border (so typical of the period) and still retain their original nozzles and snuffers.

They both have their original scratchweights engraved to the undersides and are in good condition.

The IA script mark has long been attributed to Jonathan Alleine – latest research indicates that it is the mark of John Arnell who specialised in chambersticks and candlesticks.

Dimensions: height 7 cm, diameter 12.6 cm; weight 16.23 troy oz.

John Arnell

A London silversmith working from 1766. He specialised in making candlesticks and chambersticks.
