An unusual and very fine pair of George III Footed Chambersticks made in London in 1811 by John Cramer.

The Chambersticks stand on three scroll feet and the bases have a sunken well and rise to a shaped rim decorated with reeding, shells and scrolls. The central, leaf capped, section rises to a lobed and reeded candle socket and the "pull-off" nozzle is decorated with the same border, as is seen on the base. The scroll carrying handle displays a leaf capped thumb piece and the conical extinguisher fits into the handle socket and terminates in a ball finial. Both the base, extinguisher and nozzle are engraved with a contemporary Stag Crest, with a laurel leaf around its neck. All pieces display a crisp, full, set of hallmarks.

The chambersticks are modelled in a most unusual design and are rare standing on scroll feet. It is uncommon to find pairs, as many are found singly today and both are in quite excellent condition.

Height: 4.25 inches, 10.63cm.
Base Diameter: 6 inches, 15cm.
Weight: 32oz, the pair.
