Art Deco or older?

Picked up a set of nice looking candlesticks the other day at auction. Not sure the age, maker or even style, but thought at first Art Deco. The mark is Sterling with a A.G. in a diamond. The only AG mark I see online is for a Alexander Gardner from Scotland. Any info on my purchase is much appreciated!
The base looks to have that 1800’s English silver wrap, while other pieces are solid.
Semper Fi,


No, not Scottish. I suggest must likely American from the use of the word “sterling”; this is not normally seen on British silver.

I have removed your 2 blank posts. In addition it would be more comfortable for our viewers if you could make your pictures a bit smaller.

Obvious influence of Art Nouveau.
