The Fancy Fox has clarified that the Georgian Silver Candle Snuffer Scissors Wick Trimmers John Buckett 1770 (LA349445) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1770
Condition is very good. They stand well, no repairs and the hinge mechanism works well. The tip is slightly misshapen and shows a few stress lines. Some light handling wear to the engraved decoration. The hallmarks are protected inside the snuffer box and so are fine and clear.
