Object Literature

*Old Sheffield plate was a process used in Georgian times to make articles from a sheet of copper fused with a thin sheet of sterling silver. This process predates the silver plating done today (electroplating) which started in the 1840s. The majority of these silverwares were made in Sheffield, UK (hence the term Old Sheffield plate) which was a major UK centre for silver production.

Object Condition

These lovely antique candlesticks are in very good condition with no damage or restoration. Unmarked. With a few small dinks around the bases. The silver finish is original with a very small amount of copper showing on the highlights.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
