    Of all the objects made or retailed by Cartier, candlesticks are one of the rarest and from our own records no similar pairs appear to have been sold in recent years. While they were made by the New York firm of silversmiths Dominick & Haff, they were most likely a special order from an important client of Cartier New York

    Special Notice

    No VAT will be charged on the hammer price, but VAT at 15% will be added to the buyer's premium which is invoiced on a VAT inclusive basis.
