Very high-quality chamberstick with an original snuffer. Both the chamberstick and the snuffer bear a family crest, a lion holding something. Both pieces are hallmarked with lion passant for sterling silver, crowned leopard's head for London, UK, date letter e for the year 1780, king's head as a duty mark and the maker's mark for Joseph Craddock & William Reid. There are some small dents and signs of wear but overall the condition is very good. A beautiful highly collectible item! Height with the snuffer at the top: 6.5 inches, width: ~6.0 inches, weight: 10.9 oz.
