Pair of antique, neoclassical style silver candlesticks of oval form with tapering stems and removable nozzles with reeded mounts. These elegant candlesticks are recreations of a style made popular during the 1790s and the solid silver plate fitted to each base denotes a mark of extra quality.

Neoclassicism is the 18th and 19th century movement that developed in Europe as a reaction to the excesses of Baroque and Rococo. The movement sought to return to the classical beauty and magnificence of the Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire and based on simplicity and symmetry.
