This superb Pair 18th Century Georgian Candlesticks are fully hallmarked for John Parsons & Co, they was assayed in Sheffield in 1791 making them 227 years old.

The candlesticks are of Neo-Classical design, with tapering stems having a smooth finish which in turn contrast beautifully with the reeded borders to the top, the central raised design on the stem also has the very elegant reed decoration, this all sits upon a round spreading bases and each nozzle has a removable sconces-drip pan with a reed border decoration.
T he design and decoration is beautiful so very elegant and timeless so very typical of the 18th century. The quality of the craftsmanship is superb, these would have once belonged to a wealthy 18th century Georgian household and sat pride of place on the table top, they would have been used daily in a time when candles were the only form of light on a dark evening, this was many years ago when times were so very different.

It is so very tactile and once picked up has the most wonderful feel, this will add something very special to any collection, my photos dont do it justice. Lovely condition, with the normal amount of wear expected, with a twist to one stem, and dings dents and bruising, no splits or repairs, that being said it doesnt detract at all from its rare beauty, just mentioned for accuracy...
