Today we are delighted to offer for sale a lovely antique sterling silver chamberstick! This beautifully crafted piece features a footed reticulated drip bowl and carrying loop handle, in an elegant Georgian/Colonial style. Chambersticks were used at nighttime to light a person’s way to their bedchamber. This handsome example is hallmarked on the bottom “Sterling/125/925/(hallmark 1809 or 1890)”. Chamberstick is in very good antique condition, with very minimal wear/tarnish and patina commensurate with age. There is a small dent above the left front foot (a jeweler should be able to easily smooth it out if you’d bother). This elegant piece will make a fine addition to any chamberstick collection (there is a whole website online dedicated to chambersticks, check it out!) and will add old world elegance to any interior. Fresh to the market!
