Pr. Old Sheffield Candlesticks W/ Hurricane Shade
Pair of Old Sheffield silver plate candlesticks with hurricane shades. Candlesticks are ornamented with applied foliate friezes and gadrooning near the tapered bases, each marked inside the candle cup with a single sunburst mark, possibly Matthew Boulton. Hurricane shades have frosted bands and etched grape swag decoration. One collar is brass, the other white metal. Candlesticks measure 8-1/2"H, 11" fully extended, 22"H with shades. English, early to mid 19th century.
Hurricane shades and collars are probably later, telescoping mechanism loose on one stick and not functional on the other. Minimal wear to silver.
