Description

This lovely Georgian antique sterling silver chamberstick was made by the famous industrialist Matthew Boulton and hallmarked in Birmingham 1818.

It is in very good condition with no repairs and retains its original snuffer which is also fully hallmarked. The chamberstick has a circular base with gadroon border and a scalloped shell thumbpiece. Both the chamberstick and the sniffer are engraved with an armorial of a knight on a charging horse. The stem holding the candle is cylindrical and has a working sliding candle ejector.

This is a fine piece from Matthew Boulton who was one of England's most renowned industrialists and a member of the famous Lunar Society. Quite a rare find. (NB any shadows shown in photographs are merely reflections).
