Contact us about this object
The appearance of the younger Kandler's mark on this set of four candlesticks, identical to an earlier set by Paul de Lamerie (see WA1922.214.171.124 and 2), is probably due to de Lamerie's death in August 1751. A possibility is that Kandler bought them in from the latter's unsold stock and had them assayed under his own mark.
