Magic Lantern Slide: Candlesticks made by John Elston, Exeter, 1707 (slide)


This slide is within a group of images of silver objects made or sold in Exeter. It depicts two silver candlesticks made in 1696, possibly by J Allom. All the objects in this group of photographs were held in the private collection of Brufords, an Exeter silversmith and retailer, with the earliest item made in 1571 and the latest in 1743. The photographs were taken in 1934 by Mr Weaver Baker who was a keen amateur photographer with a passion for historic Exeter, its archaeology and relics.

This object is not on display.
