HESTER BATEMAN. A very rare George III Chamber Candlestick made in London in 1788 by Hester Bateman.


The Chamberstick is circular in form with a raised edge which is decorated with an applied beaded band. The central section rises to a tulip shaped socket and the detachable nozzle has a beaded edge. The scroll side handle is decorated with a reeded band and has a holder for the conical extinguisher. The extinguisher terminates in an urn finial and has a beaded base. The Chamberstick is in excellent condition and is fully marked on the base. The extinguisher and nozzle are clearly marked with the makers mark, sterling mark and duty mark, as they should be at this date. Chambersticks and convential candlesticks are extremely rare from the workshops of Hester Bateman. This piece is also desirable as it is a particular design which was peculiar to the workshops of Hester Bateman, with no central space for a pair of snuffer scissors.
