These impressive and enormous candelabra with their extravagant ormolu mounts would have been a special commission. A drawing for similar candelabra by Blades is preserved in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. A similar set of candelabra was commissioned by the King of Persia; another set is in the collection of the Sultan of Brunei.
