Italian candlestick c. 1740s

Postby Agman » Sun Mar 17, 2019 8:15 pm

This Italian candlestick is marked for Naples, with the maker's mark rubbed, c. 1730s-40s. I'm interested especially in the crowned fleur-de-lis mark, aka Bourbon lily, in the second image, which I've never seen on another piece. The Bourbon lily would seem to suggest something to do with the Bourbon rulers of Naples and Sicily (1734-1806).

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Hi Agman,

Can you choose another photohost? The Photobucket logo prevents clear images of marks etc.

Trev.

Here are better images of the candlestick with its mysterious crowned lily mark.
