Bibliographie

Notley Abbey Inventory, April 1948, p. 2, Dining Room, ‘A pair of French [sic] enamel candlesticks with dome bases with panels painted scenes etc. gilt. 12” high’ (The Vivien Leigh Archive, Victoria & Albert Museum, London, THM/433/6/1). 

This pair of candlesticks and the following two lots are probably those from five pairs listed at Notley Abbey in 1948. Vivien was a keen collector of 18th century enamel ware. Hugo Vickers writes 'There seemed little evidence of rationing at Notley's dining-room table, exquisitely adorned with Battersea enamel candelabra, flowered Capodimonte dinner plates and Georgian silver' (Vickers, op. cit., p. 170).
