I keep coming across these candlesticks, which look for all the world like those normally found with the Sowerby 2630 trinket set EXCEPT that the centre of the diamond-shaped central stem section is entirely open (the sides of the diamond merely framing the opening) rather than being filled with a flat panel bearing a fan. 11 cms high, 7 cms across the centre section and approx 10 cms diameter across the concave base.
So, are they simply a variant of the Sowerby 2630 set candlestick, because I never seem to see them with the sets, or were they Sowerby’s standalone version, or were they , in fact, made by someone else?
Comments or suggestions, please.
