1747-49 and 1751-53
This set of six beautifully curved and balustrated silver candlesticks offered here consists of a pair by Master Philipp
Caspar Scheppich (mentioned 1741-1777, Seling No. 227 and 2334), and four candlesticks in addition to this, commissioned a little later, by Johann Balthasar Heckenhauer (born 1713, since 1746 active as master, 1779 died, Seling no. 231 and 2368).
Possibly the order to the later chandeliers took place on the occasion of the birth of more children. The engraving
on the underside of which reads "Von ausgezupftem
Golde angeschafft 1753".
From Franconian noble collection.
