A desktop set of tortoiseshell and silver candlesticks and string pot by William Comyns, London 1898. Inlaid with silver, gold and mother of pearl. The candlesticks sconces also made from tortoiseshell. Of this style of tortoiseshell candlesticks, the examples with the tortoiseshell sconces were the most desirable. 

Lesser examples had sterling silver sconces, and may have only had silver inlay, as opposed to the silver, gold and mother of pearl on this three piece set.

In superb condition throughout.
