Description:

Pair of Columnar Creamware Candlesticks, Staffordshire, England, late 18th century, Corinthian capitols on fluted columns and square bases with molded swags and detachable bobeches, ht. 10 1/4 in.

Provenance: Earle D. Vandekar of Knightsbridge.

Literature: This lot, and others from the same collection, are illustrated and contextualized in Imagining Ichabod: My Journey Into 18th-Century America Through History, Food, and a Georgian House, by Paula Bennett (Bauer and Dean: New York, 2016). Imagining Ichabod is described as a "warm, personal account of life in an eighteenth-century house and the search for its first inhabitants... [which offers] a fascinating glimpse into [the United States'] colonial period and its years as a fledgling republic."
Estimate $300-500

Both candlesticks have scattered tiny nicks to high spots, one bobeche appears to have restoration.
