A GOOD PAIR ENGLISH STERLING SILVER TABLE CANDLESTICKS, HALLMARKED SHEFFIELD. A good pair of English Sterling Silver Candlesticks made by Hawksworth, Eyre & Co. They are hallmarked with the maker's mark "HELd" for Hawksworth, Eyre & Co Ltd, the Sheffield town mark, the Lion Passant sterling silver mark and date letter "a" for 1918/19. They measure just over 11 inches (285mm) in height.
The base measures 6 inches (155mm) in width. The bases are weighted (loaded). It is normal for candlesticks to have additional heavier metal in the bases for safety reasons, to increase stability making them less likely to topple over.
They are in very good overall condition, however there are some very minor indents and scratches, consistent with age and normal use. A very nice antique pair of candlesticks.
