A Superb Pair of George II Cast Silver Candlesticks by John Cafe London 1754
A very good pair of George III cast silver table candlesticks of shell and scroll decoration to a square shaped base. The stem with a circular knop and a fluted rectangular knop. Rope twist decoration to the base and capitals. Conforming shell cornered square shaped sconces.
Fully marked to the base of each for London 1754 by John Cafe. Each capital marked with the lion passant.
These candlesticks are in superb condition with no repairs, damage or distortion. Both stand true and upright on a flat surface. The sconces fit well. The colour and patina are excellent.
These sticks are identical to the other pair of John Cafe candlesticks already listed except they are a fraction shorter and the crest is different.
They would make a superb set and I would be happy to entertain any offers for the four.
