Three Empires
A fine pair of cast silver plated candlesticks from Elkingtons in a victorian rococo style. They are marked "Elkington" with touch marks and "414" to the base.The sconces are separate.

Dating from c.1870 they stand 5 5/8inches (14.3cms) high.

The silver plate has worn and the underlying copper alloy has bled through giving a pleasing patina similar to old Sheffied plate. One has a minor dent at the base which you have to look for to see.
