A magnificent, fine and impressive pair of antique George V English sterling silver five light candelabra made in the George I style; an addition to our ornamental silverware collection.

Each impressive candelabrum retains the original hallmarked detachable push fit scrolling arms, which support rounded waisted capitals with plain, hallmarked circular dished drip pans.
Each candelabrum is fitted with two pairs of labra, secured with a central elevated capital.
These versatile antique candelabra can be used with five lights, three lights or as candlesticks once the arms (labra) are detached.
