notes

The arms are those of Sebright quartering Ashe, probably for Sir Thomas Saunders Sebright, 5th baronet (1723-1761). Upon his death, his title devolved upon his brother.

Jacob Bodendick (1634-81), a native of Lüneberg, supplied some of the wealthiest English patrons of the late 17th century, including Charles II. Bodendick initially worked in London as a chaser and caster for William Mouse I. In 1661 he married Mouse's daughter Susan and received English denization in that same year. He registered his mark at Goldsmiths' Hall in 1664; yet it was not until 1673 that Bodendick was granted Freedom of the Goldsmiths' Company, with the support of his Royal patron.

Bodendick produced a variety of domestic, corporation, livery and ecclesiastical plate. He was well versed in baroque styles, and is particularly well known for high relief embossing and chasing in the north German technique. Examples of his work in this style sold recently include a Charles II silver toilet service, offered at Christie's, New York on April 20, 2001, lot 345, and now in the collection of the Dallas Museum of Art, a pair of floral vases sold at Christie's, London, November 20, 2001, lot 86 and a porringer and cover, 1668, sold at Christie's, London, June 12, 2002, lot 121.

Some 59 pieces of Bodendick's work are known and these are listed by E. Smith, 'Jacob Bodendick', The Silver Society Journal, no. 13, Autumn 2001, pp. 66-80.

The present candlesticks, together with another pair of the same year, are Bodendick's earliest known examples of this form.
