Catalogue Note

Engraved with the crowned monogram for George, King of Saxony (1902-1904).

It is likely that these candelabra were inherited from his grandfather, King Johann of Saxony (1801-73), who was known to have been presented a large service of silver on occasion of his golden wedding anniversary in 1872. King George's crowned monogram would have been added upon or after his coronation in June 1902.
