An important pair of early English antique silver candlesticks by the sought after maker Charles Kandler. Very fine quality and made of heavy gauge cast silver. In the French taste, each with a knopped baluster stem on spreading circular base with sunken well and shaped outside border. These stunning candlesticks are beautifully chased all over and each bears an armorial crest within the sunken well.

Height 22cm. Base diagonal measurement 16.25cm.
London 1737.
Maker Charles Kandler.

Marks. The left hand stick, while certainly a pair, is unmarked. The right hand stick has a full set of marks under the base and a lion mark round the top of the candle holder.

Condition

Very good. The decoration of each, although definitely matching, has minor differences. The right hand stick has a slight distortion to the base resulting in a minor imbalance.

Maker Information

Maker: Charles (Frederick) Kandler

Charles (Frederick) Kandler, London silversmith, no record of apprenticeship or freedom. The identity of this highly important maker remains a mystery. Evidence points to Kandler being a German immigrant with possible connections with Kandler, the prized porcelain modeller at the Meissen factory, with whom he shared many similarities of style. Charles Kandler entered his first mark (New Standard and Sterling) in 1727 in partnership with James Murray however Murray died within a few months and Kandler registered new marks - New Standard (KA with a mitre above) and Sterling (CK with a pellet or mullet below in a shaped shield). He also used an unregistered mark (CK with a mitre above). In 1735 a fresh set of sterling and new standard marks was entered for Charles Frederick Kandler. It is not known whether Charles Frederick was a nephew or cousin of Charles taking control of the family business, or even if they were one and the same man. A subsequent mark was entered in 1739. Kendler left a legend of outstanding works amongst which are the great wine cooler in the Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg and the remarkable kettle in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
