Pair of silver candlesticks, ca 1890, by Herman Sudfeld, fully marked with .800 silver standard and Sudfeld's name and monogram.
Measure 16" high, 35 troy ounces.
Sudfeld is a known silversmith, working between 1883-1909.
Well proportioned, with a bulbous stem over cylindrical section upon a domed base, with four ornate feet.
Bright cut engraving over much of the surface.
Lions heads adorn the cylindrical section, each with ring and bar in their mouths.
One lion's head is missing, visible in photo, one slight dent near the top of one stick.
Overall condition is good, with spots of tarnish.
Note that there is a lot of reflection on them, and sometimes it looks like a dent in the silver, but it is not. The only dent is the one mentioned above.
Austro-Hungarian silver is highly prized, and such large candlesticks are rare.
These candlesticks are impressive, with good scale and fine details.
Price is for pair.
