Antique 1846 William Tonks and Sons Victorian Brass Griffin Candlestick Gothic


Shipping to United States: $14.95

An absolutely beautiful genuine Victorian original brass candlestick featuring a griffin (gryphon/griffon) perched on the arm.  Stunning highly intricate details, so precise down to individual hairs and feathers on this majestic mythical beast, make this truly a work of art to behold!  The base and cup also exhibit beautiful carved detail work, in a classic Victorian design, altogether giving an even older classic Gothic feel to this piece. 

The Kitemark in the cast iron base indicates this was registered in 1846; during the initial phase of British Kitemarks, 1842-1867, by the day positioned on the right and year marked as "I".  The arm does unscrew from the base, which allows examination underneath the brass to find the "WT&S" mark with what appears to be another faint Kitemark above it.  This would have been hand cast and finished by expert foundry artisans.

Measures 5" tall, arm is 6" long, base is 4" wide.  Weighs 2 pounds 13 ounces.
