Pair of Tiffany & Co Antique Sterling Silver Five-light Candelabra with Swans, New York City, 1891-1902
These stunning candelabra are a lovely size and of exceptional quality. This model is very elegant with its shaped, shiny surfaces decorated with beautiful foliate and classical repoussé and banding decoration finished with chased detailing. Scrolling foliage decorate the urn-shaped socles and outer edge of the bases. Cast winged paws make up the feet of the canted corners. The scrolling arms of the candelabra are reinforced with an applied leaf decoration and terminate with unusual swans heads under the decorated socles. Decorative beading is applied around the edges of the socles, bobeche, square drip pans and bases of the pedestals.
These candelabra are beautifully constructed with many various parts. As you can see, there are 18 parts to each candelabrum. Not only does this help when polishing the candelabra, but also gives one many options for their use. One can remove the candelabra arms and using the bobeche, use the bases as wonderful candle holders. One can also opt for using one set of arms to display a three-light candelabra or add the second arm for the full display.
These rare sterling silver candelabra are marked underneath 'TIFFANY & Co/ MAKERS/ STERLING SILVER/ 925/1000/ T/ 5906 4866'.
The candelabra measure 14.25 inches high. These elegant candelabra weigh a combined 115.50 troy ounces and are in excellent antique condition.
