These substantial silver candelabras are in very good usable condition. Each candelabra disassembles into 3 pieces (candlestick and 2 branches). All the candle sconces and central candle snuffers are removable. Each piece is marked with clear and matching English silver hallmarks (one candlestick is one year different). There are a few minor dinks. Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
