The cylindrical capital of this antique silver taper candlestick is encircled with moulded girdles, in addition to a shaped scalloped chased decorated border to the rim; the capital surmounts a lobed floral petal style drip pan.
The exceptional cast sterling silver column has been modelled in the form of a Harlequin*.
