UP FOR AUCTION: A pair (2) of silver plated two (2) light candelabra, made especially to match flatware in the charming Neo Nouveau floral pattern DAFFODIL, patented in 1950 by the International Silver Company under its 1847 Rogers Bros back stamp. These darling candlestick holders measure about 6 1/2" tall, by about 9" wide. Each has two candle cups, with scalloped edges and looking a bit like the center of a daffodil. Between the two candle cups is a figural three-dimensional sculpted daffodil. Supporting each candle cup is an arm that looks stem-like.
This candelabrum is shown and identified in a 1958 DAFFODIL catalog. See Bones, F., and Fisher, L., “The Standard Encyclopedia of American Silverplated Flatware and Hollow Ware,” c. 1998, p. 189.
On the underside of each candle stick holder are the following marks:
