Pair of Antique English Ridgway Candlesticks

$795.00 for pair
  • England, circa 1845
  • Dimensions: 8 1/2 inches tall, 4 3/8 inches diameter

Drabware was originally made by Wedgwood circa 1810. The rich color of drabware is because each piece is created using dark clay, rather than white clay which is then glazed. This clear glaze over dark clay produces drabware’s naturally rich, saturated look. The shades of drabware can vary in coloration depending upon when the piece was made, and by which pottery manufacturer in England produced it. Drabware complements most other tableware, including whites of all shades and both solid colors and patterns.

A charming pair of Antique English Drabware Ridgway Candlesticks. In Ridgway, colors vary from light taupe to taupe and even dark olive. Our pair of Candlesticks are set on a beige background. There is a wonderful bouquet of pink, red, cobalt blue, green, and yellow flowers which are prevalent throughout them. There are also traces of gilt on the border as well as interspersed in other areas of the design. An impressed mark ‘W Ridgway Son & Co.’ is located on the underneath of each Candlestick.

We are quite pleased to have acquired this pair of Candlesticks as it can be quite difficult to find a pair in pristine condition like these are.
