This pair of vintage Lunt silverplate candlesticks have a gorgeous, ornate pattern with heavy embossing.

Lunt, an engraver in the A .F. Towle & Son company, bought the business and renamed it Rogers, Lunt and Bowlen Co. The company has remained in the Lunt family hands since the founding. In 1935, the name was changed to Lunt Silversmiths. In late 2009, the company sold its name and inventory to competitor Reed & Barton. In early 2010, the company filed for bankruptcy protection and all remaining manufacturing & inventory assets at the Greenfield, Massachusetts factory were sold at auction. Massachusetts
