Silver candlesticks from Antwerp, 1814/1815
A set of silver empire candlesticks with baluster shaft on circular base with facets and acanthus leaf motifs. The candlesticks contain bobèches which contain the same maker’s mark. The base of the candlesticks contains a wooden block (of slightly different size) making them feel heavy and stable. Both candlesticks are made by Jean Baptiste Verberckt II from Antwerp but one candlestick has been marked before 1814 and the other after 1814.
The candlesticks are identical and in an excellent condition.
