Pair of Highest Quality 1822 Regency Sterling Chamber Sticks - Fully Marked with Provenance

Pair of fully marked Regency Chamber Sticks with Snuffers, London, 1822, Maker: Richard Sibley.

Bearing the combined coat of arms of Sir Tatton Sykes, 4th Baronet and Mary Anne Foulis of Sledmere House, east Yorkshire. The couple were married in 1822, the same year these are dated. Likely a wedding present for the couple.

Sykes was a famous livestock breeder and patron of horse racing, and was Master of Foxhounds for 40 years. A portrait miniature of his wife, Mary Anne, is held by the national trust: http://www.nationaltrustcollections.org.uk/object/1298405

Sledmere house, where these chamber sticks were likely used: https://www.sledmerehouse.com/sledmere-house-east-yorkshire/history-east-yorkshire-country-house.html

Image of Triton blowing Conch shell horn Chased on snuffer and on bobeche (Triton usually implies a navel connection in heraldry).

Marked “No. 1” and “No. 2” on underside and on the various pieces (bobeche and cones – though also marked No. 3 and No. 4)

Combine weight of both: 34.42 oz (17.24, 17.18 oz)

Richard Sibley was a very well-respected silversmith during the William IV period, known for creating pieces of the highest quality and nearly always in the restrained Regency taste. To find household items of his, in such wonderful condition, is quite extraordinary and particularly when these pieces have remained a pair and can be traced back to their original owners.
