I need some help with this…
I am trying to establish the value of these Sheffield Candlesticks that the owner insists are sterling silver, not plated. They have been passed down from her great grandparents.
How can I confirm that this is a hallmarked silver item vs. plated?
And what would be their estimated value?
The markings on each candlestick are: Makers initials: JKB/TH/GW; Marks for Sheffield Crown and Lion Passant; date letter D and monarch’s head facing left.
Each candlestick is Height: 7.5”; Weight: 1 lb 15 oz
