Matthew Boulton produced various models of candle vases in different sizes: this is one of the largest. The candle arms are unusual for this model, and to date this is the only known pair with this type of arm. The usual version is the scroll arm. A pair of candelabra with such scroll arms is in the collection at Blenheim Palace.

The pierced and silvered liners beneath both lids are original, adding to the rarity of the pair.

Literature: Nicholas Goodison, Matthew Boulton, Ormolu, London 2002, p. 285, ills. 241.
