Jocelyn Burton

PAIR OF CANDELABRA

2003

Made from sheet silver, scored, folded and soldered; modelled and cast candle nozzles with spun holders, finials made from sheet silver

Commissioned to commemorate Richard Vanderpump’s year in office as Prime Warden of the Goldsmiths’ Company, 1998–1999, for use at Goldsmiths’ Hall.

Vanderpump admired Humphrey Payne’s candlesticks commissioned by the Goldsmiths’ Company in 1740 for this purpose. The antique pieces were the starting point for Jocelyn Burton’s classic candelabra.
