    Antique Antique Set of 3 Sterling Silver Candlesticks William Gibson & John Langman 1895

    This is a wonderful set of three antique English Victorian sterling silver candlesticks bearing the makers' marks of the renowned silversmiths William Gibson & John Langman, London, and dating 1895.

    Each of these splendid classically style candlesticks features an exquisite oval urn-shaped nozzle on stylish knopped and tapering stems.
    They retain their original detachable push fit sconces with beautiful reed decoration to the rim.

    Presented to Ella Sieveking on her marriage. She studied art at the Slade School with Hubert Herkomer and became the first woman Vice President of Morley College, Lambeth.
