- sponsor's mark, often called the maker's mark: TL & EM are Latham & Morton of Vyse Street, Birmingham, the partners being Thomas Latham & Ernest Morton. This mark was registered on 7 August 1902
- lion passant: the English mark for sterling silver
- town mark: the sword & wheatsheaves mark of the Chester Assay Office
- date letter: cursive E for the assay year 1905/06
You don't show the tops of these pieces but they look to me more like vases than candlesticks. They is probably no pattern name. Here in the UK we don't seem to have the same obsession with pattern names as in the US.
