This mid 18th century silver snuffer tray is of triangular form and the wick trimmers, of silver and iron construction, fit snugly and precisely onto the shaped platform. Initial “S” engraved to the base of the stand.

Weight of stand 118 grams, 3.7 troy ounces.

Measures – stand length 21.8cm, width 8.8cm, scissors length 14.1cm, width 5.6cm.

German silver marks for Augsburg 1757/9.

Maker Jon. Jac. Baur.

Marks. The snuffer tray is stamped on the handle with German silver marks for Augsburg 1759 and maker Jon. Jac. Baur. The scissors are fully stamped with German silver marks for Augsburg 1757 and matching maker Jon. Jac. Baur.

Literature: There were few snuffers made (in England) prior to 1700 and by the early nineteenth century more refined candles were introduced which no longer required the wick to be cut.

Snuffers and trays were usually made by different specialists so even though the dates match, the makers will probably be different.
