This magnificent silver plate candelabra, by the acclaimed Elkington, Mason and Co., masters of silver plating, celebrates the fruits of the harvest. Intricately decorated arms form a grape vine canopy laden with fruit, under which three pastoral figures dance upon a triangular base. Such a phenomenal creation would only have been crafted for the most prominent patron, and is a testament to the level of mastery that Elkington achieved. The crest, motto, and marital coat-of-arms of the families of Rochfort-Boyd and Woods grace the pedestal, as does the monogram GAB, almost certainly for George Augustus Rochfort-Boyd. Features maker's marks E&Co. (below crown), E, M, &Co., 6.

Hallmarked England, 1844

Known for pioneering and perfecting the process of electroplating, Elkington & Co. was founded in Birmingham during the 1840s to master the art of silver plating. Elkington even established its own copper refinery in order to maintain the high-quality standards that they, and their customers, demanded. The company received financial backing from Josiah Mason, an English pen-manufacturer, industrialist and philanthropist, in 1842 (renaming the firm Elkington, Mason & Co between 1842 and 1861) and was extremely successful. By the end of the 19th century, Elkington had earned Royal Warrants from numerous royal families including Queen Victoria, King Edward and the King of Spain. They were also awarded the French Republic's highest honor, the Legion d'Honneur.
