Catalogue Note

These interesting candlesticks are hallmarked 1751-2, the date of Lamerie’s death and the sale of his stock, molds and tools. It is possible that Hayens acquired directly or indirectly molds or indeed actual candlesticks. The quality and finish is consistent with Lamerie’s work of about 1740. Hayens has added a section below the sconce to raise the height in accordance with changing fashion, but the workmanship of the rest is fully that of Lamerie’s workshop. For a similar set by Lamerie, 1740, see the exhibition catalog, Paul de Lamerie at the Sign of the Golden Ball, Goldsmiths’ Hall, 1990, cat. no. 88, p. 134-5.
