Set Of 4 William Gould Cast Sterling Silver Candlesticks George II, 1749
An extremely good set of four cast silver George II candlesticks. Marked to the underside for London 1749 by William Gould. Also marked to each capital. The bases are engraved with a crest of a raised fist holding a five-pointed star. The underside of each stick also carries the original scratch weight.
These are an extremely unusual set of candlesticks in a very attractive and highly unusual pattern. They are in original unrestored condition with only very minor wear to the high points. The marks are clear although the marks to the capitals are slightly worn. Exceptionally good weight of and very robust gauge silver. William Gould was a specialist candlestick maker and these are a wonderful example of his highly skilled silversmithing.
