Large antique 5 candle, candelabra that is marked on the bottom, "Middletown Plate Co.", "Quadruple Plate". This mark dates the piece somewhere between 1835, when the company started, to 1899 when it merged with International Silver. The candelabra is 12 inches tall, and is spectacular in design with a long, twisted arm for 4 of the candle holders. This piece is unique, too, in that the ornate tops are removable. I imagine that the entire piece would polish up to look like the insides of these inserts. It's clean, with no old wax residue, and has no dents. However, one of the arms is a bit loose, where it is welded to the main base. So, after a time, it droops. I believe that a spot of silver solder would fix the problem. See the last, close up photo. Because of this, and the high cost of shipping this large, and heavy piece, I have priced it low. It is tarnished, and I DO NOT clean silver, so am selling as is.
I recently purchased several pieces of vintage and antique silver pieces, and am happy to combine shipping, when it is safe to do so. I will be adding more pieces over the next few days. To see them all, type, "silverplate" in the search box at the top of the page.
