This most attractive pair date from about 1875. They have pierced Cylindrical bodies with gadrooned bands to the top and base. They are in good original condition with no damage. Most of the Silver plate has worn off due to over 130 years of cleaning by servants. Personally I love the Copper shining through the Silver, infact I have a similar pair myself. They really are full over character and would benefit from a good polish. Size: 9 (3 1/2"inches) Tall
