This handsome pair of candlesticks were made by Hawksworth, Eyre & Co. of Sheffield, England in the Adam style. The motto engraved on each, 'fortiter et recte' means 'with strength and rectitude'. The maker's mark used on this pair indicates they were made between 1841-1865. Both are in very good condition with just minor surface scratches from use, tho you may wish to polish them further. The felt base coverings are stained and are coming away from the bottoms. A bit of wax remains in the cups. Nozzles are easily removed. Measurement: 11.5" tall.
Layaway available for full priced items over $500.
