A good Pair of Early 19th Century Antique English Georgian Patent Telescopic Brass Candlesticks of lovely colour and of documentary interest. Although the simple draw-up mechanism allows the upper part of each stick to be completely withdrawn from the lower base, nevertheless, and somewhat surprisingly, the candlesticks remain in place and steady when raised, as illustrated in Image 2. We remain undecided as to the originality or otherwise of the inset wooden bases, but are inclined to regard them as later additions. Of far greater import is the fact that the base of each stick is stamped with the device of a crown and the letters W.S. PATENT, since, according to the late Ronald F. Michaelis, probably today regarded as the most respected authority on the subject, only some one in a thousand antique candlesticks are to be found bearing Maker's Marks. Height when closed ~ 15.80 cm. / 6.25 inches ~ Height when raised ~ 24.20 cm. / 9.50 inches ~ Width ~ 9.50 cm. / 3.75 inches ~ Depth ~ 9.50 cm. / 3.75 inches ~ Year ~ Circa 1820. ~ Ref. POAEGPTBC-17
