Antique Silver CANDELABRA description:

A type of ornamental candle-holder for the table, with multiple nozzles or sockets.

Antique Silver CANDELABRA history:

18th century candelabra are now quite rare, and anything before 1750 is very rare. The vast majority were made in the 19th century before the advent of electricity, and they are still being made today.

Antique Silver CANDELABRA design:

They were often made in sets each one holding between two to six candles in their sockets. The arms were often quite ornate and for ease of cleaning were made removable from their bases. The central stem often had a flame-shaped finial or flambeau that was designed to be removed and used as an extinguisher.

Antique Silver CANDELABRA collectors note:

Antique silver candelabra have often been repaired and it is now difficult to find them without some form of restoration. Look closely at where the arms are attached to the main candlestick body. Also it is important to check that the hallmark on the arms and base match as there are many candelabra that have arms added later by a different maker. The marks on the removable bobeches must also be the same to be in original condition.
