This pair of antique silver-plated three-light candelabra is a recreation of a George III style pattern made famous by Matthew Boulton circa 1805.
The candelabra are very versatile. The two candlesticks can be used independently by taking a removable nozzle from a branch and placing it on the candlestick. The removable branches can be slotted, one above the other, to make a single five light centrepiece.
The central "flame" snuffers are also removable, as are the wax drips; all meaning they are easy to clean and, fitted with 12" (300mm) candles, the candelabra are an excellent height to light the table without the flames becoming a distraction.
Another pair is available which could be matched to make a fine suite of five-light candelabra.
