Pair of English sterling weighted candlesticks made by William Hutton and Sons in 1901 and 1903. Firm established in Sheffield in 1832 and London in 1863. Very important company in The history of metal work. They developed a new nickel alloy which established the plating process known as British Plate. They acquired Rupert Favell & Company in 1893 and Creswick and Company in 1902. For hallmarking purposes they marked both in Sheffield and London. They were bought out by James Dixon and Sons in 1930.
These tall and distinctive candlesticks retain their original hallmarked bobeches and are in excellent condition except for minor dents around the upper rims. No monograms. Measures 12”high.
