These antique Irish silver candlesticks are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition. The cast decoration is all very sharp. Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each base, in addition to part hallmarks to each capital and sconce are all very clear; the hallmarks are deeply struck due to the exceptional gauge of silver. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of these examples of antique home decor.
