An exceptionally fine pair of George III Cast Candlesticks made in London in 1774 by Jonathan Alleine.

The Candlesticks stand on a wide square base, with sunken well, and outer gadrooned border. The shaped stems have an unusual octagonal form which is decorated with crisp gadrooned bands and cascading gadrooning at the base. The removable square nozzles are also decoarted with gadrooning. Both are in excellent, crisp, condition and are fully marked in the base and with the maker's mark and sterling mark on the nozzles. These are a very sought after and desirable style. With regard to the maker, Jonathan Alleine, his work is scarce, but always of the finest quality. His mark is to be found almost exclusively on candlesticks, therefore we can conclude that he was a specialist maker of such items.

Height: 10.1 inches, 25.25cm.
Diagonal base diameter: 6.6 inches, 16.5cm.
Weight: An outstanding 50oz, the pair !
