Presented is a classical, Georgian sterling silver chamberstick and snuffer made by Robert Sharp of London in 1802. Both pieces have threaded rims. The candle holder has a raised ribbed design around the outside. The handle of the snuffer was made to fit into a small insert on the chamberstick handle.
The handle of the chamberstick has a flat thumb-rest. This piece is made in the style of the times. The original bobeche has been lost and replaced with a later English silverplate bobeche with matching decorations.
The underside of the chamberstick and the snuffer are both marked with a duty mark of King George III's head, the lion passant for sterling silver and a date letter G for the year 1802. The chamberstick is also marked with the crowned leopard's head for London and a maker's mark for Robert Sharp. The silverplate bobeche is marked on its underside with Dismond and Liverpool.This piece is in excellent overall condition, especially for its age. There is some surface wear and some very small, pencil tip sized dings but they are only really visible when you are inspecting the piece. There are no major dents, no breaks, no splits, no monograms, no monogram removals and no repairs. The chamber stick measures 5 5/8 inches in diameter, is 3 3/4 inches tall and with the snuffer the whole piece weighs 306 grams or 10.8 ounces.
This weight does not include the weight of the silverplate bobeche. Powered by SixBit's eCommerce Solution. This item is in the category "Antiques\Silver\Non-U. The seller is "robertcharlessilver" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped worldwide.
