A pair of magnificent Victorian antique silver four light candelabra with Corinthian columns.

The candelabra are very much in the Neoclassical Robert Adam taste of the 1770s. They stand on bold plain square bases with an upper bead border. Above the bases, they are beautifully decorated with swags, bows and medallions to each side.

The scroll branches have circular bead nozzles which are detachable. The candelabra can be used as a three light by placing the detachable urn finial into the central nozzle.

The candelabra are in superb condition and made by one of the best silversmiths of the period.

All the detachable nozzles and central detachable urns are correctly hallmarked.

Dimensions: height 47 cm, width (of base) 15.6 cm
