Victorian Silver "Harlequin" Candle Doubter.
Made by John & Frank Pairpoint in London, 1899.
Length 4.5" (11.5cm). Weight 1.41 troy oz. (44g).
(This item is SOLD, please return to the STOCK page).
The reason that this piece is reffered to as a candle doubter,
and not as a pair of sugar nips (as they would appear to be at first glance),
is that the feet are flat and are therefore designed
to extinguish a flaming wick, as opposed to gripping a lump of sugar.
