1791 English Georgian Sterling Silver Chamberstick Candleholder by Henry Chawner
Presented is a fabulous English Georgian sterling silver chamberstick. This piece dates to 1791 and was made by Henry Chawner. The chamberstick is done in a simple, classical form, with a C-scroll handle. The bobeche or wax drip is removable for ease of cleaning, and clearly original to the piece as it is stamped with the same maker's mark.

Both the wax drip and the undertray of the chamberstick holder are engraved with a crest of a lion. This piece is in good overall condition.

There is some solder repair/reinforcement to the handle and along the underside of the piece, shown in the 7th photo on the inner rim. These repairs are easily antique themselves. We unfortunately do not have the snuffer, but there is a slot for one.

There are no splits, no breaks, no dents, no monogram removals, and no other repairs. This piece is hallmarked on the underside with the lion passant for sterling silver, the leopard's head crowned for the city of London, the date letter q for 1791, King George III's head duty mark, and the maker's mark for Henry Chawner. The wax drip is also marked with Henry Chawner's mark. This piece measures about 6 3/8 inches from handle to opposite side, and stands about 2 1/4 inches tall. This piece weighs 220 grams or 7.8 regular ounces.
