The Chamberstick has a circular base with raised rim decorated with gadrooning, acanthus leaves and Rococo shells. The central shaft rises to a baluster shaped socket and the detachable nozzle is decorated with the same border, as seen on the base. This piece has a very unusual reeded carrying handle. The Chamberstick also comes with a fully marked pair of snuffer scissors of the same date and by the same maker, which fit perfectly in the central section. The Chamberstick is in excellent condition and is very well marked. This is the first Irish example we have ever seen, especially with their original snuffer scissors. An extremely rare example which does not feature in any of the books on Irish silver.
